Sid Sackson called it Solitaire.

Do you know it by any other common name?

In Iran it's known as "Boro Gomsho Kuni" or something like that.

It is basically the same thing as the old Hi-Q. And if you're still young enough to have a decent memory, you can amaze your friends by "winning" every time. These have been solved and you can memorize the moves.

Oh, you like Iranian games? They're my specialty. My favorite is "Kiram Tu Kose Nanat". I'm rated very highly in that one. Play it all the time.

You people are weird.

Actually "Peg Solitaire" to differentiate from solitaire card games.

If you relly want to get into this game:

Re: What's the name of that peg-jumping game at Cracker Barr
Always used to be called "Solitaire" when I was a pup...

But here's a nice page dedicated to it...

EDIT - Added link

PS - I originally thought this thread was talking about processed cheese...

You know, that stuff is real cheese, and not bad to boot.
