Deluxe Mahogany Solitaire Board Game
Solitaire is a board game for one player involving movement of pegs or marbles on a board with holes. Game includes a full set of glass playing marbles. The standard board game fills the entire board with marbles except for the central hole. The objective of solitaire is, making valid moves, to empty the entire board except for a solitary marble in the central hole. You are only allowed to make legal "jumps" to play the game.
