--------
The game

Chinese checkers (also known as Sternhalma or Chinese chequers) is a popular board game originating from Germany. It is played on a star-shaped board by 2 to 6 players. Each player tries to move all of their pieces from their starting corner to the opposite one.
To learn more about the rules of the game, click “Read rules” on the main screen.

--------
Game modes

The app allows you to play the game both online and offline.
There are two ways of playing online: 1. be matched to a random opponent, 2. create a private game and play with your friends or join such a game by typing in the code.
Offline games offer capabilities to play against the computer, or against another player locally on the same device. You can configure the game to have any number of players (e.g. you against a bot, or you against 5 bots).

--------
Bots

Currently 3 different bots are available: “weak bot”, “medium bot” and “strong bot".
As the name suggests, weak bot simulates a weak player that frequently makes non-optimal moves. Choose this option if you just started learning the game.
Regular bot is much smarter, though experienced players should be able to beat it.
It takes even more effects to beat a strong bot.

--------
Profile

Click on the person icon on the bottom-right corner of the main screen to configure your profile which is displayed to other players during online games. You can type in your name and choose an avatar.

--------
Settings

Click on the gear icon on the main page to open the Settings screen. It allows you to configure the game to match your preferences. In Settings, you can:
- adjust interface sounds volume (button clicks, moves, game end & other sounds);
- adjust background music volume;
- choose background music track;
- choose interface theme and game board theme;
- switch on/off Super Chinese Checkers mode;
- switch on/off “cheating” mode: show all possible destinations;
- and many more.

--------
How to play

Click the “Read rules” button on the main screen to watch an interactive tutorial.

Have fun!

Game works really well, good difficulty level against the computer. It has a feature to play online against a random opponents, but I've never been able to match up with anyone, presumably because not too many people have the app. Download it and play gainst me!

Plays a good game of Super Chinese Checkers. Would be useful to have a method of saving or recording offline games for later study. Also, could some stronger levels of bot play be added? The interface is simple, attractive and functional.

Hi John, you’re absolutely right, but to create a very strong bot is a very difficult task and I’ve been trying for quite some time already. Anyway, this is certainly one of my goals and once it’s born, I’ll make sure to update the app immediately. Thank you for your feedback.

Strongest Chinese Checkers bot that I have ever played. I have been waiting for someone to do a really good one for many years. Thank you for this awesome game!
