Flipping Solitaire ... Lazy edition

ΟΚ I like solitaire ... but I am a bit lazy and I don't want to spend any time in putting the pions back into their place... so I figured out that I have to go back to my garage-workshop and make a solitaire board that could skip this step ... and here it is, my flipping solitaire lazy edition ;)

It's not the final project, there are still some improvements to make ...
The rules of playing are  the same, but you don't take out any of the pions, you just push and pull them.
Have a look at the video down below to understand how it works ...

Wooden board solitaire

A friend of mine gave the idea to make a board solitaire game. 
The board is made of MDF wood and the pions are aluminum rivets and colored pencils.
