Play Chinese Checkers in style! Wood Artist Paul Szewc of Guelph has built this premium, unique and fun-to-play large wooden Chinese Checkers board.
This Chinese Checker board is made of hard maple and the dragon images and game outlines have been laser engraved and will not wear off through extended use. These patterns give the game board a textured and embossed look.
Through production the game board has been hand shaped, sanded, and finished with several coats of lacquer creating a smooth to the touch finish. This is the same process that a fine piece of furniture receives. It is very durable and requires no care. Simply wipe with a damp cloth if it becomes dirty.
When you're not playing the game, the board can be hung on the wall as a piece of artwork due to the keyhole slot on the back of the board.
Paul designed this Chinese Checkers board with better play in mind. Tired of traditional boards, where the marbles sit close together making clear movement over the board difficult, Paul designed this game board so that the marbles are larger and the indentations where the marbles sit are further apart allowing the player to easily pickup and move during their turn. Additionally, lasered channels connecting the indentations allow for easy marble travel.
The estimated diameter of the board is 18 5/8" with an estimated circumference of 58 1/2". As our products are hand finished, slight changes in size may occur from the size given. Additionally, please note that due to wood grain variance, your board may differ slightly than the board shown in the photos. Marble colours may also differ from the images shown.
Please note the last image shows the jumbo (left side) and large (right side) versions of the game for comparison. Only the large game board is in included with your purchase. Multiple boards may be purchased at one time. If you wish to order a jumbo Chinese Checkers please visit other listing.
