Or at least, score "genius" level on the peg jump game (as seen at Cracker Barrel restaurants).

Here is a solution that ends with one peg in the original open space. In the diagrams, 1 represents a peg, 0 represents an empty hole. Each jump is represented by taking the red peg and jumping it over the green peg into the blue hole (the green peg is then removed).

My DEX and I used to see those at truck stop diners all the time when we were over the road. We could NEVER get it.

Who knew you had to be a genius to do it.

Laughed when I even opened the post RE: BE a genius - I are one.

And then I saw the pictures of all the pretty little Christmas trees with a couple of colored lights on them and quickly thought that HWGA had discovered the HOW TO install stupid tree lights in some new fangled ingenious method that would render you ABLE to remove them after the holiday was over and not have to tug on the stupid electric stranded light set that you don't remember tying to the branch in a ((((((((((( fashion but must have to be able to get that one little light to stick in the hand of the angel at the top of the tree - and then you take any bulb and remove it because we ALL KNOW angels have to be holding a YELLOW bulb light and not a pink, blue, red, green or orange light .....and while I'm on the subject SINCE WHEN did christmas lights start coming in orange and purple? No one wants orange and purple lights - It's Christmas not halloween .....or wait.....maybe those lights were IN the halloween decorations and someone just handed you a strand they had tested and now it's too late because you have ((((((((((( the stupid purple and orange lights around the center part of the tree with all the other lights on top and bottom. FUGHADDABOUTIT.

And what were you talking about? Actually NOW that I go back and look at your diagram - it looks like OUR tree at any given time of the month with some of the lights working, some not, some working and then of course on Christmas Day we get good ole #14 and all our pictures look like someone just forgot to plug in the tree that morning.

(I love the peg game) I hate stringing ((((((((()))))((((((( christmas tree lights.
