Solving Triangular Peg Solitaire

George Bell wrote a special version of Triangular Peg Solitaire for the website back in 2005.

He has now published a paper here: Solving Triangular Peg Solitaire.

A quote: "... avoid jumping into a corner or out of the interior. Many people stymied by this puzzle can find a solution if they follow this rule of thumb."


"The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  - Leon M. Lederman

Where is this paper? It seems like a good puzzle.

Re: Solving Triangular Peg Solitaire

If you click the link MathsIsFun has given for the paper, you get to the page and up in the top right corner it says

"Download:

    * PostScript
    * PDF
    * Other formats"

Choose one of those. Your computer probably has Adobe so I'd choose PDF.
