Chinese checkers is a board game that can be played by two, three, four, or six people, playing individually or with partners. The game is a modern and simplified variation of Halma. The objective is to be first to race one's pieces across the hexagram-shaped game board into "home" – the corner of the star opposite one's starting corner – using single-step moves or moves which jump over other pieces. Others keep playing to establish 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, and last place finishers. The game involves some strategy but is popular even among young children.
A basic strategy is to find the longest hopping path that leads closest to, or immediately into, "home" – the destination star point at the opposite side of the board. (Multiple-jump moves are obviously faster to relocate pieces than step-by-step moves.) Since either player can make use of any hopping 'ladder' or 'chain' created, more advanced strategy involves hindering an opposing player, in addition to helping oneself find jumps across the board. Of equal importance are the players' strategies for emptying and filling their starting and home corners. Games between experts are rarely decided by more than a couple of moves.
Differing numbers of players result in different game layouts. Each layout imposes a different best-game strategy. For example, if a player's "home" or destination corner is empty (not an opponent's starting corner), the player can freely arrange his/her pieces to serve as a 'ladder' or 'bridge' between the two opposite ends. But if a player's opponent occupies the home destination corner, the player might be better advised to play a "waiting game" until all pieces have moved out.

No instructions and can't figure it out. I have tried n tried and can't figure out how to play 2 players. Is always against 5 or me having 2 colors.
Never opens. Closes before I can even start a game. :(
Rating for Chinese Checkers
For the game to really be useful, I have these suggestions. 1. make it a player for one player against the computer or just two players on the computer cmpetiting against each other. 2. The rules usually state that you can not park in another persom’s home base of 10 marble spaces. Go through but not park. Would love to see a good game developed. Rarely can you get 6 people playing a computer Chinese Checkers Game. Have the game where you can choose how many players and the time used for each movement. Saw it developed in 1990 that was excellent but lost it durimg a fire in my home. Hope to get one developed free or not free. Thanks for trying and keep on trying. Chinese Checker Games are great in competition …More young people need to learn this game.
