Was worried when 2 days before Christmas I rec'd Walkers Shortbread cookies in the mail instead of my Son's Chinese Checkers! I called & got this very helpful male on the phone who apologized, told me to keep the cookies & they would most definitely send the Chinese Checkers out via Express Fed EX. Remember this was 2 days before Christmas! The game was there the next day at my doorstep & the boys love it! P.S. The cookies, my husband said, were the best ones he had ever tasted! Now, I will need to order more cookies to eat while we play Chinese Checkers! Thanks V.C.S.

exactly what I wanted
Brings back fond memories from family gatherings. great gift idea for someone who has perhaps forgotten how enjoyable a game could be

This high quality Chinese checkers board was a big hit with my 8 year old Grandaughter for her birthday. The pegs are much nicer than the old marbles and the board is a nice size for little hands as well as big, and easily portable.
Her and her 6 year old sister quickly caught on after Grandpop showed them how to strategically move the pegs for the greatest number of jumps. They played with it all weekend.
I am already thinking what game to get for next year, as these games from the past are sometimes very hard to find, and yours are of top quality.

safer than marbles around younger siblings
I like the plain wooden board much better than the highly decorated metal boards usually seen in the stores. The little wooden pegs are safer than the marbles around the younger siblings (no swallowing) and they don't roll all over the place if dropped.

Love Chinese Checkers
I am so happy to find this set of Chinese Checkers. I owned one of these sets for years, but it somehow got misplaced when we moved. I've been looking for a set in this style ever since and haven't seen one. The pegs are so much better than the marbles which can get lost so easily, and the board is very sturdy, unbendable, and unbreakable. Thank you!!

Still a great game
Gave to my neighbor as a gift. They like board games.
He was excited that it used pegs rather than marbles--prevents dislocation when and if jostled. I was surprised, though, that the catalogue said it needed to be played with partners. One of the beauties of Chinese Checkers is that it does not--if you have 3 or 5 people, everyone can play--you play for yourself.

My husband and I are in our 80's and housebound and we wanted to find something to do to occupy ourselves. Looking through your catalog, we spotted the Chinese checkers. Perfect! The board is well made and the pegs are so much better than the marbles used many years ago. No more rolling away...perhaps to never be seen again! Thanks for the memories as well as the joy of using our 'noggins'.
