Review:
The classic peg solitaire game is transformed into a two-player game with refreshingly simple rules. Players alternate placing one of their own color marbles on the board, then take turns jumping over each other's marbles and removing them from the board. The winner is the player with most marbles remaining after no more moves are possible. As players come to realize that placing marbles in certain holes can offer protection from being jumped, or that some jumps can force the opponent to jump one of his own marbles instead of theirs, they are eager to play again to test their new strategies. Several optional rules keep the game from ever getting stale. There are even two ways to play alone when no one else is around -- what a great way to improve one's skills! Thirteen-inch wood board and solid glass marbles merit a place on the coffee table.
