Chinese checkers is a board game that can be played by two to six people. The object of the main game is to place one's pieces in the corner opposite their starting position by moving them through jumps over other pieces. The game does not actually originate from China (nor is it a variation on checkers or Chinese chess), but was given that name in the United States to make it sound more exotic. When it was first released in Germany, it was called Stern-Halma, as it is similar to the older game of Halma except that the board is star (stern) shaped. The Chinese checkers board is laid out in a six-pointed star. The game pieces are usually six sets of coloured marbles, ten of each colour. The ten marbles are arranged as a triangle in the starting position in one of the corners of the star. Two different variations can be played on the game set, "hop across" and "capture". Each of the games has an original and a fast-paced variant.
