We study a popular pencil-and-paper game called morpion solitaire.
We present upper and lower bounds for the maximum score
attainable for many versions of the game. We also show that, in its most
general form, the game is NP-hard and the high score is inapproximable
within n1 − ε
for any ε > 0 unless P = NP.
