Despite its name, the game is not a variation of checkers, nor did it originate in China or any part of Asia. The game was invented in Germany in 1892 under the name “Stern-Halma” as a variation of the older American game Halma. The “Stern” (German for star) refers to the board’s star shape. The name “Chinese Checkers” originated in the United States as a marketing scheme by Bill and Jack Pressman, who acquired the rights to the game in 1928. Chinese Checkers would become a tremendous success for the Pressman Toy Corporation.

“[Riddle] In which country was the game Chinese Checkers invented?”

The game was invented in Germany in 1892 under the name “Stern-Halma” as a variation of the older American game Halma. The Stern (German for star) refers to the board’s star shape (in contrast to the square board used in Halma).
A board resembling a checkers board was found in Ur dating from 3000 BC. In the British Museum are specimens of ancient Egyptian checkerboards, found with their pieces in burial chambers, and the game was played by the pharaoh Hatshepsut.
