Essential extras missing
on 24 March 2011
Whilst the Chinese Chequers board is beautifully made and the wood is good quality and nice to the touch, a couple of vital things have been omitted.
The board should have had lines drawn on it, showing which moves are permitted and which are not. (Easier for people learning the game to explain that you can't move across a diamond shape). Also, the colours should have been painted (blocked in) showing where 'Home' is. Simpler then for someone using the red counters, for example, to head for the red Home.
I bought this game for a local Hospice Day Unit, but am slightly disappointed that these finishing touches were not made. (I didn't spot the flaws until the packaging had been taken off).
