Abstract: The central Delannoy numbers, d_n_{n >=0} = 1,3,13,63,321, 1683, 8989, 48639, ... (A001850 of {\it The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences}) will be defined so that d_n counts the lattice paths running from (0,0) to (n,n) that use the steps (1,0), (0,1), and (1,1). In a recreational spirit we give a collection of 29 configurations that these numbers count.
