Apple Games Features iPod Chinese Checkers
11:39 AM | Cord Kruse | 1 comment

Apple Games has posted a new article examining Chinese Checkers for Apple's iPod multimedia devices. The game recreates the classic board game and adds extras like statistic tracking and a variety of board styles. Apple's article includes an overview of the game's features and a list of tips and tricks for success.

Between two and six, but not five, players can participate. (Five canít play because someoneís 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 opponentís), 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.
