What It IsThe classic game of Chinese Checkers has been revolutionized. Well, maybe that's too strong a word, but Pressman has added some new elements to make a classic game even more engaging.
Initially, the game plays like Chinese Checkers, in which players must jump over pieces on the board to get all of their pieces to the opposite side of the game board and into their home spaces. However, in this version, players can pick cards that instruct them to turn the board, and a ring in the center of the board shifts. Players will never know if this will help them by placing them closer to their goal or setting them back.
The new element of play changes the strategy a little bit, but adds an element of chance that can be rewarding or frustrating...that's the nature of chance, though. This is a fun game that will be a great addition to any family game collection.
