How did Chinese Checkers online start ? Full story - Part 1
Recently, one old friend asked me about the story behind Chinese Checkers Online, and I thought it would also be interesting to share this story with you.
In June 2019, I visited a friend in St Petersburg, and we played halma one day in a youth hostel. It was pouring rain outside, and we played again and again. I was terrible at it, but it was fun.
Back in London, I did not especially think about the game and continue working on one project called Bifup (a Fitbit application to count repetitions based on the acceleration sensor).
In December 2019, I suddenly remembered about this game and looked online to buy one.
In February-March 2020, I played a lot with a friend from Brasil. (That's why you can see the Brasilian flag on the landing page).
The lockdown arrived, and it was more complicated to play together in person. At this time, we decided to play Chess online. And one idea popped up "I am missing playing with my friend at Chinese Checkers. Could we play Chinese Checkers online?". I looked for a platform online, but nothing was there. "Well, I can just create it."
