SolBoard (“Peg Solitaire”)

$2.99 from Magno Urbano

Solboard or Solitaire Board Game (also known as Peg Solitaire) is a board game for one player involving movement of pegs on a board with holes. This game is known simply as Solitaire in the United Kingdom.

This is a mind game, a puzzle, invented in the 17th Century.

According to the legend, Solitaire was invented by a French aristocrat in the 17th Century, when incarcerated in the Bastille, explaining the game’s less common name Solo Noble, but no evidence was ever found to support this story.

The first evidence of the game can be traced back to the court of Louis XIV, and the specific date of 1697. Several works of art from that time show peg solitaire boards, demonstrating that the game was highly fashionable.

The standard game fills the entire board with pegs except for the central hole. The objective is, making valid moves, to empty the entire board except for a solitary peg in the central hole.

Variations

There are two traditional boards, the English, with 33 positions and the French with 37 positions. Solboard comes with these two variations and offer several ways to start the game.

So, enjoy the Solitaire Board Game! It is a game for all ages.
