Description of Chinese Checkers for iPod

BS Editor: Between two and six, but not five, players can participate. (Five can’t Play because someone’s goal will be an empty area, which gives them an unfair advantage.) As in the classic board game, the objective is to move your marbles from their starting area to the opposite side of the board. Moves may only be one space at a time, unless you Jump another marble (yours or an opponent’s), in which case you can keep going until there are no more jumps. The first player to move all of their marbles into the goal is the winner.

You can undo a move after making it, and three times per game, you can ask for a hint. Between games, check out the Statistics screen to view your total games, wins and losses, fastest game, and biggest jump for two-, three-, four-, and six-player matches.

And for a change of pace, do something you never could in the old days: choose among boards made of wood, glass, stone, metal, or rock, with a wide variety of images, from an ocean to Outer Space, available as your background.

Tips and Tricks
Get as many marbles out of your starting zone as quickly as possible during the game’s opening moves. They help Create long jump opportunities. And make sure you move out the marbles toward the tip of the star point, or they could wind up trapped by an opponent. (Yes, that opponent will need your starting zone vacated of your marbles to have a shot at winning, but if they’re stubborn about it, you won’t be able to win either.)
The Novice and Medium difficulty levels display all possible moves when you select a marble, but if you’d rather not see them, choose Expert difficulty.
You can choose not to take all the jumps in a sequence, if you’d prefer not to because doing so would give an opponent an advantage.
As you move your marbles into their destination zone, place them as far back as possible, so they don’t block newcomers.
You can find more advice at Wikibooks and LearnPlayWin.
