    Actually Hi-Q was a game with 33 holes, 32 pegs. Same concept though. The pattern was this (starting w/the center hole empty):

    o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o
    I used to actually know the answer to solving this (ending w/one peg in the center) in the fewest number of moves (multiple jumps w/one peg == 1 move).

      Whoops.

      'nuff said. Still cool, though...
