LOVE that game. I used to play with my grandmother and we enjoyed it so much that if it was only the two of us, we would use three "houses" each and have all the pegs in play. I am trying to teach it to my kids, but they don't seem to be that interested.
It's funny that "chinese" checkers is a German invention.
No. I'm not very good at these kinds of strategic games.

I did as a kid.
That's about it.
I think it's one of those games we don't see too much of now, well I haven't.
We used to play it a lot when we were little, I associate it with my Grandma for some reason though I'm not sure if we ever played it with her! Maybe it was her set we used?
I'm not actually a huge fan of playing games so haven't played it since leaving home but maybe it's time to invest in one to teach my son. He's just learning how to play board games and is VERY competitive....
No I haven't.
I use to play it as a kid. Haven't played it for years. I think I will get one snd teach our twin grandsons how to play it
Now you are making me think!
I think I used to play it but that was probably 50 years ago and I cannot remember whether I liked it or even how to play it.

I know we used to play this with my grandparents but I can't for the life of me remember the rules. Their board was an inset in a cadboard box and the tokens were round balls. I recall they were made of a chalky substance and many of them had lost their coatings. It didn't matter we played with them still. In those days nothing got thrown away if it could still be used.
Yes, I have played and enjoy it. My kids love it too.
many times as a child loved it, my grandchildren now play it and also love the game.,

Yes! Loved it & still do! Only use game with 'marble' pieces, not pegs! Other games still enjoyed: Dominoes, Scrabble. My Grandmother taught me many types of games, including card ones.
These days, kids' prefer to play on computers! I've the above three games loaded on mine.....
I didn't have a board but my best friend did. I can't remember if I played it -was very young.
My brother and I used to play it sitting on the floor in front of the coke fire. Can't remember the rules now but we often played board games as we were in a generation brought up on playing games to keep occupied.
