Pentalpha is a solitaire game played on Crete in the early twentieth century.

Rules

The board is a five-pointed star. The player has nine pieces. The player attempts to place all the pieces on the board. The player choses a point, then moves the piece two spaces in a straight line. The piece may move through a spot occupied by another piece, but must land on an empty space. The player wins by successfully placing all nine pieces.
