'I deleted the code I put in re: jumping over holes-I got so frustrated with it!!!  So far this works out well, it just needs to stop the user from jumping over an empty hole!

Option Explicit




Private Sub Form_Load()
'Declare x as variable
    Dim intx
'Declare inthole as integer
    Dim inthole As Integer
'Declare pieces of game
    For intx = 0 To 99
        imgGame(intx).Picture = imgPeg.Picture
        imgGame(intx).DragIcon = imgIcon.Picture
    Next intx
 'Random hole
    Randomize
    inthole = CInt(Rnd * 99)
    imgGame(inthole).Picture = imgHole.Picture
    imgGame(inthole).Tag = "H"
    imgGame(inthole).DragMode = vbManual
End Sub

Private Sub imgGame_DragDrop(Index As Integer, Source As Control, X As Single, Y As Single)
'Declare intmid as integer
    Dim intmid As Integer
'Declare jumpDist as integer
    Dim jumpDist As Integer
 'Legal jump?
    jumpDist = Index - Source.Index
    If Abs(jumpDist) <> 2 And Abs(jumpDist) <> 20 Then
  'Illegal destination
      Exit Sub
      End If
'Jump distance=jump distance divided by 2 + control being dragged
    intmid = jumpDist / 2 + Source.Index
  If imgGame(Index).Tag = "H" Then
'Change source
    Source.Picture = imgHole.Picture
    Source.Tag = "H"
    Source.DragMode = vbManual
'Change middle
    imgGame(intmid).Picture = imgHole.Picture
    imgGame(intmid).Tag = "H"
    imgGame(intmid).DragMode = vbManual
'Change destination
    imgGame(Index).Picture = imgPeg.Picture
    imgGame(Index).Tag = "P"
    imgGame(Index).DragMode = vbAutomatic
 End If
   
End Sub

Here's the code as it should have been - changes are marked with ' *****

In the load, you weren't setting the tag to 'P' for all holes.

In the jump code, I've placed the test for jump over code in place as it should be.

This should do it.

Private Sub Form_Load()
'Declare x as variable
    Dim intx
'Declare inthole as integer
    Dim inthole As Integer
'Declare pieces of game
    For intx = 0 To 99
        imgGame(intx).Picture = imgPeg.Picture
        imgGame(intx).DragIcon = imgIcon.Picture
        imgGame(intx).Tag = "P"   ' ***** Needed
    Next intx
 'Random hole
    Randomize
    inthole = CInt(Rnd * 99)
    imgGame(inthole).Picture = imgHole.Picture
    imgGame(inthole).Tag = "H"
    imgGame(inthole).DragMode = vbManual
End Sub


Private Sub imgGame_DragDrop(Index As Integer, Source As Control, X As Single, Y As Single)
'Declare intmid as integer
    Dim intmid As Integer
'Declare jumpDist as integer
    Dim jumpDist As Integer
 'Legal jump?
    jumpDist = Index - Source.Index
    If Abs(jumpDist) <> 2 And Abs(jumpDist) <> 20 Then
  'Illegal destination
      Exit Sub
      End If
'Jump distance=jump distance divided by 2 + control being dragged
    intmid = jumpDist / 2 + Source.Index
  If imgGame(Index).Tag = "H" Then
    If imgMame(intMid).Tag = "P" Then   ' ***** Is intermediate hole pegged
'Change source
      Source.Picture = imgHole.Picture
      Source.Tag = "H"
      Source.DragMode = vbManual
'Change middle
      imgGame(intmid).Picture = imgHole.Picture
      imgGame(intmid).Tag = "H"
      imgGame(intmid).DragMode = vbManual
'Change destination
      imgGame(Index).Picture = imgPeg.Picture
      imgGame(Index).Tag = "P"
      imgGame(Index).DragMode = vbAutomatic
   Else   ' *****
       ' ***** Trying to jump over a hole!
   End If '*****
 End If
     
End Sub
