Chinese Checkers, by Monkey Pod Games

Learn about 

Did you know that Chinese Checkers, the ideal 2-6 player family game, was invented in Germany? It was originally called "Stern-Halma" upon its invention Germany in 1893, but was renamed by an American to make the game sound more exotic. Yikes! Still, this classic strategy game is fun for everyone and families large and small: designed for 2-6 players, the object is for a player to be the first to transfer all his pieces to the corner opposite his home base by moving pieces into an adjacent empty hole or jumping over a single peg of any color. 

Monkey Pod Games's version is beautifully handcrafted with wooden pegs, not marbles, so a little bump won't ruin the game. And, the game board folds and latches with the pegs inside for easy clean up and storage. Opened game board measures 9.5" x 10.5" x .75".

Monkey Pod Games are eco-friendly and sustainably made from rubber or monkey pod wood and finished with a mix of natural oils. Rubber wood is harvested only from rubber trees that can no longer be used to produce rubber. Monkey pod trees (also known as Saman, the Rain Tree or, Albizia Saman) are large, fast growing trees, found in many regions of the world. Because they grow so easily, they require little maintenance, making little impact on the environment.  Trees are replanted each year to replace those that were cut.
