9780198532033: The Ins and Outs of Peg Solitaire (Recreations in Mathematics)

For mathematical game enthusiasts, the 33-hole Peg Solitarie board presents many intriguing and difficult problems, far more fascinating than the simple problmes set out in manufacturers' instructions, and behind these problems lies interesting mathematical theory. Beasley, an internationally known expert on Peg Solitaire, surveys the history of the game, shows how to play it simply and well, explains the theory behind it, and offers over 200 problems and their solutions in over 550 diagramms. Mathematical game fans aged twelve and over will find hours of enjoyment in this book.
John Beasley is a freelance computing expert who has studied Peg Solitaire since 1960 and made many original discoveries about the game. He has also composed and published over 50 chess problems and endgame studies, and represented Great Britain in two World Chess Solving Championships in 1977 and 1978.
