This is a 42 marble version of solitaire and the largest version that I make (in terms of number of marbles). Like my other versions of solitaire, the rules are simple. You simply remove one marble from the board and place it in one of the holders in the corner. Then jump one marble over one other marble into the open spot. Remove the marble that you jumped over and then repeat until you no longer have marbles adjacent to each other and can therefore no longer jump. To win, you must leave only one marble in the diamond. If you do it perfectly, it should end exactly in the center. See? Simple. Of course, that doesn't mean that it's easy.
It's hours of brain puzzling fun and great mental exercise. This board is made of solid oak and is 10 1/2" square. It is 3/4" thick. The board in the picture is one of the many boards that I have produced, you will not receive the exact same board as in the picture. It will be the same oak, but there will be some natural variations in the color and grain pattern. Similarly, the marbles used are from a mixed batch. The marbles that you will receive will be the same 5/8" diameter size, but you will not get exactly the same color combination.
Warning. Choking hazard. Not intended for children under 5 years.
