Why this site: A resource like this didn't exist for Chinese Checkers, so I made it...

Site made with: IrfanView, SnagIt and Paint Shop Pro (PSP), Microsoft FrontPage 2000 and later edited Document made with Nvu  and Kompozer Kompozer

Please help me: Do you know other games than the ones I have listed? Do you have any other info about the history of Halma and Chinese Checkers?

Link to me ?:
Yes, please...
