The aim is to race all one's beads into the star corner on the opposite side of the board before opponents do the same. Each player has 10 beads.
In "hop across", the most popular variation, each player starts with their colored beads on one of the six points or corners of the star and attempts to race them all home into the opposite corner. Players take turns moving a single piece, either by moving one step in any direction to an adjacent empty space, or by jumping in one or any number of available consecutive hops over other single pieces. A player may not combine hopping with a single-step move – a move consists of one or the other. There is no capturing in Chinese checkers, so hopped pieces remain active and in play. Turns proceed clockwise around the board.
