Chinese Checkers

Chinese Checkers
Henry: "Momma, come play with us!"
Zachary: "Come lose to me is more like it."

I would sweeties, but I think you're missing too many pieces.

Dog Blog Post #1485

Trivia: According to Wikipedia, the game is neither a variation of checkers nor did it originate in China.

It was invented in 1892 as a German simplification of the American game Halma.

The center of the board, that is. Probably more visible on the box than the game set itself.

Daily Dog Challenge 993. "Not In July"

Pretty sure the boys haven't played Chinese Checkers yet this month :)

Editor's Note

I had a shot of both boys with their heads on their paws, but they just looked so sad I couldn't bring myself to upload it.

The "happy" shot of both smiling didn't turn out.

Therefore, you'll just have to use your imagination to decide how today's short story ends.

(For the record, they are missing one each for Yellow and Black, and two for Green - although I tried to obscure the fact by leaving the center holes of each triangle empty plus the far edge for green.)

They look pretty darned cute to me! I'm wondering if there was a winner this time...

So cute golden dudes and we had no idea it was invented by the Germans. Have a terrific Tuesday.
