The Chinese Checkers game
board is in the shape of a six pointed star and is playable with two up
to six people at the same time. Each player uses pegs or markers of a
different color placed within one of the points of the star. The object
is to move all your ten pegs across the board (move one step at the
time or jump over adjacent pegs) to occupy the star point directly
opposite. The player getting all pegs across first wins.
Chinese Checkers was
invented in Germany in (1892) and it's an descendant from the game of
Halma (1883). Chinese Checkers is not from China and it has nothing to
do with the game Checkers.... It is neither related to the peg game
'Marble Solitaire' or 'Peg Solitaire'; who sometimes wrongly
is called Chinese Checkers.
