It's not Chinese

For starters, it's not Chinese. It was probably inspired by a British fave called Hoppity, and its immediate forbearer, Halma was invented by a Bostonian professor/surgeon. There are a number of variants, but you're probably most familiar with the ubiquitous star-shaped version. Inevitably, some people take it too seriously. Wanna play? See also, DIY and stop motion Fergiliciousness. (Personally, I prefer Hex.)
