    Leaving one peg is easy. I'm looking for the solution to leaving one peg in all three corners. Anyone know how?

    O.K., so maybe you long time players can help me out. I find myself in possession of a

    brand new peg game. Great, right? All the pegs are in it, so do I just pull a peg and put it aside, so there will be a place to serve as a jumping area, or something else? Thanks!

    I only did it with one left once in my life before, but thanks to you, now I can memorize it! Also, see if you can leave 10 pegs instead of one.

    I start with the middle peg of the bottom edge empty (where you started the blue peg). If I have one odd-colored peg, I put it in the top corner. Then I can announce to the amazed onlookers that not only can I leave just one peg at the end, but it will be the odd colored one, and it will be in the hole that was empty to begin with.
