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.
