Chinese checkers is a game for two to six players. The winner is the first to move all their pieces across the board.
It can be played by two, three, four or six players. Obviously, for the six player game, all pegs and triangles are used. If there are four players, play starts in two pairs of opposing triangles and a two player game should also be played from opposing triangles. In a three player game the pegs will start in three triangles equidistant from each other.
Each player chooses a colour and the 10 pegs of that colour are placed in the appropriately coloured triangle. The idea is to move your pieces to the opposite triangle.History
