The first evidence of the game can be traced back to the court of Louis XIV. Several works of art from that time show peg solitaire boards, demonstrating that the game was highly fashionable.
1. Set up the board with a peg in all the holes but one.
2. Jump one peg over the other peg, landing in the hole that was left open.
3. Remove the peg that was jumped over.
4. Continue jumping and removing pegs unril no moves remain.
5. Try to leave only 1 peg on the board , or try to leave 9 with no moves remaining.
