|Peg Solitaire 1.1
|Peg Solitaire 1.1 is
the computer version of an old classic game which has been around for years in one
shape or another (sometimes called Hi-Q). The play is simple - game pieces (pegs)
are arranged in the pattern illustrated below, with the center space open.
Pegs are moved by jumping one peg over a peg next to it, either horizontally or vertically (but not diagonally). The peg which was jumped is removed from the board. Play continues in this manner until no more jumps can be made. The object of the game is to leave only one peg remaining when all jumps are completed.
This is a great game
to teach kids how to plan ahead, and think in a progressive manner. The game keeps
a running tally of how many pegs remain on the board during play, and shows the best
score achieved, so a player can see how he/she has progressed from one game to another,
and also try to beat the best score.
