Solitaire

In this game, there are 32 balls in a playing field with 33 places. You can only jump over a ball, if there is a free place directly behind this ball. You may jump horizontally or vertically. Every ball which has been jumped over, is removed from the field. The goal of this game is to leave exactly one ball, in the middle of the playing field.




The Question: How can this be done?

A Hint : By clicking on the ball you can move the ball in the desired direction.

Answer: If we number the places in the playing field as shown below, then this is a possible solution: 5 down, 24 up, 32 up, 19 left, 17 up, 30 up, 27 left, 24 right, 13 down, 27 left, 18 down, 33 up, 6 down, 25 up, 22 right, 31 up, 24 left, 21 right, 16 down, 14 right, 9 down, 28 up, 1 down, 16 up, 7 right, 12 left, 10 left, 3 left, 1 down, 8 right, 5 down.
