- Rules for each game included in the bag for you to store the pieces in
Here's the Chinese Checkers game that you remember from your childhood, but in a whole new light. Instead of the old, painted metal one that made such the racket as everything rattled about inside, this one is made of solid wood. This board is bigger than the old metal one as well. It's 18" of solid alder that is sure to last for generations. Also unlike the metal one that is buried in your closet, this one has all 60 of the marbles! Oh come on, you know the one you are thinking of only has about 56 of them (maybe less). I'm even including a bag to keep them in. I also include a copy of the rules (because I'm sure that I'm not the only one who had to go look them up).
I have made more than one of these games. So the actual board that you will receive will probably not be the exact same board in the pictures. It will be the same species of wood and it will be the same design, but the natural characteristics inherent to working with natural material guarantees that each board that I make will be a bit different and unique in its own way.
Fun fact of the day: Chinese checkers is not, in fact, Chinese. It's German and the original name for it was the hopping game.
Warning: Choking hazard. Not intended for children under 5 or anyone who still explores things by taste.
