Home alone, maybe cooking by yourself?  Here's a satisfying little game, more of a puzzle really, that's as addictive as eating peanuts. Papillon It tells the story of French convict Henri Charriere), nicknamed Papillon ("butterfly"), who was imprisoned in 1933 in the notorious Devils Island penal colony might have enjoyed this puzzle while planning his many escape attempts.

Clear glass marbles reflect the various and beautiful that are used in the making of the board.  A handsome pouch holds all the marbles (and a few extras) and non-marring rubber feet protect your playing surface. 

Marble Solitaire (or Solo Noble) is a board game for one player involving the movement of marbles on a board with indentations. Some sets use pegs in a board with holes. The game is known simply as Solitaire in the United Kingdom while the card games are called Patience. It is also referred to as Brainvita (especially in India).

The first evidence of the game can be traced back to the court of Louis XIV, and the specific date of 1687. The August 1687 edition of the French literary magazine Mercure Galant contains a description of the board, rules and sample problems. This is the first known reference to the game in print.

The standard game fills the entire board with marbles except for the central indentation. The objective is, making valid moves, to empty the entire board except for a solitary marble in the central indentation. ---Wikipedia (paraphrased)

Wood is a natural product and no two pieces are exactly the same.  Grain, design makeup and wood coloring will vary slightly from board to board and from the examples depicted on this page.  Also, most woods will darken or change color slightly over time, particularly with exposure to sunlight.  This is. a natural evolution and you will find that the character of the wood deepens and grows more luxurious.
