A rectangular board 2 inches broad and 3 inches long has holes bored

into it in the design herewith illustrated. Nails are stuck loosely in

all of these holes, excepting the centre one. The puzzle is to jump all

of the nails off the board so that only one nail is left, and that in

the centre-hole on the board. The nails are jumped off in the same

manner that men are jumped in the game of checkers. Jumping is allowed

either forward, backward, or sideward, but not diagonally.
