This chinese checkers board is made from solid cherry and has been finger-jointed together for longevity. The lids are made of hard maple with rare earth magnets that holds them in place for storage. This is a delight as there is no need to store marbles elsewhere.
This is a premium board for many reasons. First of all, the marbles are larger than your average Chinese Marbles game. The holes where the marbles rest are further apart than other boards, which allows your fingers to easily grab the marble and move it without disturbing other marbles. There is a groove connecting the holes for easy marble travel, which is also pleasing to the eye.
Three of the lids are fixed and have each been laser engraved with a scoreboard, enabling each person to keep score adjacent to his play area. Comes with an extra marble in each color for scoring purposes.
The patterns on the marble storage lids have also been laser engraved and will not wear off. This gives the lids a textured and embossed look.
Finished with multiple sandings and sprayed with sealer then sanded again and sealed. This creates that smooth-to-touch finish on every surface. This process is the same as which a high quality piece of furniture receives. It is very durable and requires no care. Simply wipe with a damp cloth if it becomes dirty. It will last for many years to come.
The back of the board has a key slot so it can be hung by a screw on the wall for decoration and easy access to play.
The board measures 20" round x approx. 1-1/8" to the top of the lids.
Four rubber feet keep the board from slipping on the table.
Warning: This game contains small pieces that could pose a choking hazard. Please keep out of reach of small children
