App Giveaway: 50 copies of Chinese Checkers 307

Chinese Checkers

Little known fact: Chinese checkers is neither checkers nor Chinese. The game originated from 1892 Germany, and was itself an evolution of a square American board game caled Halma. But that doesn't matter, because you can now play it on your TouchPad, thanks to the Chinese Checkers game by PJ Nation. As any Chinese Checkers ought to do, it supports up to six players, human or computer, and in our experience is quite skilled at kicking our butts to all six corners of the board. Feel like getting your butt kicked by the computer, or just want to kill time with a partner (or five)? Good, because we've got fifty copies to give away!

Contest: We have 50 copies of Chinese Checkers to give away. Just leave a comment on this post to enter. Contest ends next Sunday at midnight US Eastern Time after which time we will select 50 random entrants to win. Please only leave one comment, multiple entries won’t count. Promo codes are only valid in countries serviced by the App Catalog, and users must be running webOS 3.0 or higher with the latest version of the App Catalog.

Bonus story:  My family is hosting a student from China, and he loves board games (as does our entire family.  Euro board gamers represent!).  We've played Chinese Checkers with him a few times.  He had played the game in China, and it is a game that is somewhat known in China.  They call it "Jump Chess." (or at least that is what he calls it...)
