What is Chinese Checkers?

 

The Chinese checkers board has 121 holes or indentations arranged to form a six-pointed star much like a regular hexagram, with ten such spots within each triangular star-point of the hexagram, and 61 within its hexagon. The game pieces are usually six sets of colored pieces (typically marbles), ten of each color. Each set of ten pieces begins placed in the spots of one of the star-points.   Play rotates amongst contestants in fixed order, each player making one move before the next player. A move advances a piece towards an opposite corner, either to an adjacent spot or, by a “jump” over an opponents piece, to a spot two places removed. The objective of the game is to place one's pieces in the corner opposite their starting position of a pitted hexagram by single moves or jumps over other pieces.

 

The Chinese Checkers Case

This beautiful piece is made of wood and leather, using old traditional Chinese techniques, the leather is wrapped around the wood and bound tightly so that the skin is smooth and perfectly formed to the piece. Stylish brass fixtures and latch complete the exterior. Inside the box is lined with aged Chinese paper filled with characters,   adding to the authenticity and feel of the product.

 
 

The lid of the box is painted with beautiful and traditional Chinese paintings of Flower and Birds.   In Chinese culture, these represent luck and happiness. The case has been treated to help preserve the paintings and the exterior.
