Your goal in the game of Solitaire is to let the least possible number of the pieces on the board. The game is solved if only one piece remains (in the more difficult version the last piece must finish the game in the middle). A piece can be moved only by jumping over another piece, but it can jump only over one piece at a time. Pieces do not move diagonally. The piece over which another one has jumped is removed from the board. You can play both on the classic and on the modern board.
The classic version of the Solitaire differs from the contemporary version only by the shape of the board. The board has 4 additional fields. Because the game has no solution, if you start from the middle free field, the starting field has been moved.
