Solitaire was invented in the 17th century by a French noble imprisoned in the Bastille. Game boards have been found all over the world in the last 300 years with little improvement on the original design.
Solitaire is a game that is traditionally played on a wooden board. At the beginning of the game the ball in the center of the board is removed. Moves are made by jumping a ball over an adjacent ball, removing each ball as you pass over it. The aim of the game is to remove all the balls until only one ball is left in the center of the board.
