With three players, play from every other triangle.For five and six players, pick any triangle you want. Fill each triangle being played with each player's colored pegs. Step 2: Jump pegs Decide which player will go first. Step 3: Move the pegs Move one peg starting with the first player. Pegs move one space each turn and must be moved into an empty space. Pegs may move in any direction; the goal is to get the peg to the triangle directly opposite the starting triangle. Step 4: Take turns until a player wins Jump a peg if the adjacent space is open. A peg can continue jumping as long as there are pegs to jump over. Players may jump any pegs. Tip You can jump a peg all the way across the board. Step 5: Take turns, with each player moving their pegs. The first player to get all ten of their pegs into the opposite triangle wins. Did You Know?
