[edit] Hints

Hint One
    These puzzles are a lot more fun if you experiment and try to come to the answer on your own. Don't depend on Hints Two and Three to give away much of the puzzle.

    Start this puzzle by moving the ball in the center of the second row from the top.

Hint Two
    No more hints to be had here! Instead, here's a little fun fact. Did you know that peg solitaire is actually known as brainvita in India?

    Oh, and just so you know, Hint Three is also trivia.

Hint Three
    Fun-fact time! The first evidence of peg solitaire can be traced back to the court of Louis XIV.

Nice!

The only condition for solving these puzzles was eliminating all but one ball from the board, but the true solution to these puzzles requires you to finish with the ball positioned on the center space.

Perhaps that will provide some incentive for you to revisit a few of these peg solitaire puzzles.
