Peg Solitaire Game HC194

A small wooden board with thirty-two metal pegs.

The game may have dated from the early 17th century, when a French aristocrat was imprisoned in the Bastille. The game begins with the whole board filled with pegs, except for the centre hole. The aim is to empty the entire board by jumping over pegs, leaving only one peg in the central hole. The pegs which are jumped over are removed.
