Summary

Text-based game puzzler to remove checkers until only one remains.

The Good

Peg games have always been enjoyable as brain teasers, and this one definitely satisfies. It doesn't work on coordinates, but rather uses a numbered position system so that entries are quick and easy.

The Bad

The numbered positions are only shown at the beginning, which means you have to write them down or use an overlay to remember which of the 64 positions you are moving from and to. You can also count positions, but that is definitely tedious.

The Bottom Line

Fun little text-based peg game that is a nice mental break from the standard common triangle wooden puzzle.
