Chinese Checkers

Re. Covid 19: We remain open and most games are still available...

 

Chinese Checkers

Chinese Checkers (or Chinese Chequers) was invented in the 1920s in America and has nothing to do with China. In fact it's based on an earlier Victorian game called Halma which is played on a square 16 x 16 chequer board.

At Masters Traditional Games, we know that cheap Chinese Checkers games can be found all over the place so for our discerning customers we put effort into finding things that are either high quality or a little bit special in some way. We think that ours is the most interesting selection of Chinese Checkers boards around.

The Origin of Chinese Checkers

Chinese Checkers, disappointingly, is no more than Halma (a Victorian games invented in the 1880s) transported to a star shaped board. It was first patented in the West by Ravensburger, the famous German games company, under the name Stern-Halma in Germany a few years after Halma appeared.

It was later launched in the USA under the catchier name of Chinese Checkers, and this is the form that is most well-known today. J Pressman is believed to be the person who introduced the game to the USA during 1928 although several other manufacturers started to make it thereafter including Milton Bradley whom, an unconfirmed report has it, patented the game in 1941.

You can learn more about the History of Chinese Checkers from The Online Guide to Traditional Games.
