Chinese Checkers, also known as Sternhalma, is a strategy board game of German origin. It can be played by two, three, four, or even six people. The game is a simplified variation of the original Halma game. Players take turns placing marbles to move them towards the goal.
This game is played with six players and has a board that is shaped like a six-pointed star with peg holes in each point. It also has an inner hexagon with five peg holes on each side. There are six sets of ten pegs at each point, with each set of pegs corresponding to a certain color. There is no limit to the number of players in a game, but it is important to start from opposite corners of the board.
The first player must move the marbles out of his home triangle and into the target triangle. To win, the goal is to fill all of the empty spaces in the target triangle. Players can also swap marbles with their opponents. If the attacking player has nine marbles in the destination triangle, the game is won. In a normal game, each player has six spaces. This means that it can take a while for the game to finish.
Chinese Checkers is a strategy game. Players must set up the board in a way that allows them to make multiple jumps. If a player has a piece in an adjacent hole, they cannot play a move that blocks that hole. In addition to allowing the marbles to jump over another marble, players must also make sure the marbles are lined up correctly to make multiple moves.
