More about the game of Peg Solitaire:

Peg Solitaire is also called Solo Noble, and is originally thought to have originated in Madagascar. A similar game called Bainvita is also found in India and surrounding countries. First evidence of written rules of the game along with board design have been found to be published in the August 1687 edition of the French literary magazine Mercure galant.

The standard game uses pegs to fill the entire board except for the central hole, and the player aims to make valid moves to empty the entire board until only one peg remains.

A valid move is to jump a peg orthogonally over an adjacent peg into a hole two positions away and then to remove the jumped peg.

There are two types of boards, the English and the European. Our sets use the English Board and does not have the additional four holes of a European Board.

Some complex mathematical strategies have been developed to master this game, but to be honest we just enjoy playing it to relax and enjoy ourselves, especially with these beautifully crafted animal pieces and designed board.
