Asterix Chinese Checkers Game

Asterix Chinese checkers


Great addition to the Asterix board games collection: a Chinese checkers game all ready for you to re-enact Asterix and the Big Fight!

You’d think Asterix was pulling our legs! The rules for the game of Chinese checkers, the latest addition to the Asterix board games collection, won’t fail to surprise you… Judge for yourself: “Chinese checkers isn’t actually “Chinese” at all.” As the Romans say, it’ll leave you speechless. And as far as I’m concerned, it’s all Greek to me!


But don’t be alarmed: this game, first played by the Chinese under the name “tiao-qui” (jumping chess) far from disgraces the collection. Based on the Asterix and the Big Fight album, it will let you to turn the “brilliant” Roman Gaul Cassius Ceramix into a master of strategy! The granite finish of the game board is superb and the counters, in the form of giant cauldrons, appear in colours which remind us of Getafix’s insane adventures after being struck on the head by one of Obelix’s menhirs…
