Reverse Solitaire

Reverse Solitaire is very much like Peg Solitaire except the moves now are in reverse: a jump over an empty square magically fills it with a peg. The goal of the game is to get the starting position of the Solitaire whereas now you start with its ending position. In principle, the puzzle should be as easy (or as difficult) as its original counterpart. However, I have discovered that to me, as far as the theory goes, it's much easier to visualize full packages than the empty ones. Try playing the game before reading further.
