A star


Chinese checkers, I learned, is a game that has nothing to do with China. It was first played in Germany in the late 19th century and is based on a slightly earlier game invented in the U.S. A marketer invented the Chinese checkers name in the 1920s. Figures. Up to six people can play the game. This board is visually striking, with a cream colored star bordered in apple green and a burgundy base featuring a dark border created by a lot of handling.
