This review is from: Chinese Chequers (Toy)
A well-crafted, high-quality wooden board and six sets of 10 coloured chequers. I was surprised to learn from reading the box that this game was originally invented in Germany in 1893 as 'Stern-Halma' and was based on an earlier version called 'Halma'. The name 'Chinese Chequers' was actually coined for the American market to make it more exotic-sounding! It's a wonderful game of strategy and tactics that's great fun for all the family. I remember playing Chinese Chequers when I was younger and it's nice to now share that same enjoyment with my own children.
