The game itself is available here.
- Your aim is to remove all but one of the pieces - to have One (piece) Left
- Click the mouse button once to mark the piece to move, then another click on the position you want to move it to.
- You can only move in north, west, south and east directions. (not diagonally)
- You can only move the piece to an empty position - two positions away from the origin.
- The piece between the origin and destination will be removed.
- A piece can only be removed if jumping over it with another piece (see rule 3-5)
- You can go back and forth using the redo and undo buttons.
- There are five boards to choose among, all are very difficult, some may not have a solution at all.
- The timer does not affect the game, it just tells how long you have been playing.
- If you manage to get just 2 or 3 pieces left, you are excellent.
- 4 pieces left is also a good score.
- 5-6 pieces left is also fair.
- If you end up with more than 7 pieces left, try again, and see if you can perform better.
