Product Description

Sound the gong and prepare for the Far East with this beautiful wooden version of the most exciting and ideal family game. ...OK...so it was originally called "Stern-Halma" upon its invention Germany in 1893 and only renamed Chinese Checkers by an American to make the game sound more exotic - No matter, you can still pretend you're playing in fierce competition with the Huns while drinking tea on the Great Wall...OK, OK... so it's not even made in China... Still - this classic strategy game is fun for everyone and families large and small: designed for 2-6 players, the object is for a player to be the first to transfer all his pieces to the corner opposite his home base by moving pieces into an adjacent empty hole or jumping over a single peg of any color. Dimensions: 9 2/3" x 10" x 3/5"

It should not say 'LARGE' Chinese Checkers, as it is small, smaller than I was hoping for. I should have read the description better than I did. But, otherwise, I am pleased with it. I notice that some people, regarding other Chinese Checkers games, are not happy with the 'plastic' pegs they are getting with their wooden games. These ARE wooden pegs with this game!

As a child, I have very fond memories of playing Chinese Checkers with my grandma. I decided to introduce this game to my son and make some memories of our own. This game is marvelous! The wood is solid and the board nicely made. It folds in the middle for easy storage and even has a little loop for hanging on the wall if desired. The pegs are brightly colored and easy to tell apart and they stay in place much better than the style that uses marbles. Since my son is only 5, I also like that they are not as heavy and as breakable! Overall, this is a great product at an excellent price. I had looked locally and could barely purchase a cheaply made set of Chinese Checkers with a cardboard playing surface for this price. Thanks Amazon!

From all the other Chinese Checkers sets I saw online, this one is by far the best option for the price. The game arrived quickly and is better quality than I expected. The set includes easy to understand instructions for new players. My husband and I, along with our 6-year-old daughter, began an enjoyable game as soon as we opened it. The set is made of fine wood, and I'm now curious to see the other products made by this brand

Having the pegs instead of the marbles makes it less hassle to play. The case and parts are well constructed. The darker pegs are a little hard to see at times but fine in the right light. Great game.

When the description said "large", I expected large, not standard size. Service was good but product was not up to my expectations.
