Game 1 is a version of the game Solitaire (or solo Noble), played on 13 different boards using a rect grid.
This is a one player game involving the movement of pegs on a board with holes. The player removes pegs by jumping over an adjacent peg into an empty hole two positions away. The aim is to leave as little pegs on the board as possible.
For this game we implemented shape technology to be able to make rect grids of different shapes. All of these boards are known solvable variants; however, as long as the variant has the proper “parity” and is large enough, it will probably be solvable.
