Try to remove all pieces, except the last one, from the board in this logic game. You can do this by jumping with a neighbouring stone onto a free field of the stone to be removed. You can always only jump horizontally or vertically. Around the corner or diagonally (except for the triangle field) is not allowed.
With its individual boards, tasks and puzzles, Solohalma is the perfect game for in between. Increase your concentration, whether you're on your way to work or home in the tram or the train, take a few minutes off your head on the toilet or want to relax in bed in the evening, there's always time for a little round of Halma.
Train your concentration skills by planning your moves in advance and constantly improving yourself. And when the standard boards are no longer a challenge for you, there are many other tasks.
