How to play Chinese Checkers?

Setting up the game

The shape of the board is a six-pointed star, and each point has ten “peg” (or marble) holes inside of it. The inner hexagon of the board is also filled with peg holes, and each side of the hexagon has five peg holes along it.

One colour will be assigned to you while joining the game.

Win the game

To win the game, you must move all ten of your pegs into the triangle directly across from your starting triangle. Orange -> Green, Green -> Orange and so on. Aborting is losing.


For each game won, you will get +20. For each game lost (when game is completed), you will get +5. If you abort the game, you will get no points.


Players take turns to move a single peg of their own colour. In one turn a peg may either be simply moved into an adjacent hole OR it may make one or more hops over other pegs.
