There are a number of things that make the wooden version of this board game the ideal choice. Traditionally this board game was made using marbles and played using marbles instead of wood pegs. Playing with marbles makes it difficult to manage especially for kids because the round marble pegs will start rolling even if the board receives a slight jerk.
On the other hand wooden pegs are easy to use as they firmly fit into their places. Hence there is no danger of ruining a good game of checkers. Children will find it much easier to manage a wooden Chinese checkers board game than one that makes use of marbles. The fact that the pegs are fitted on to the board also keeps them safe from getting lost and to top it all off wooden Chinese checker boards are the cheapest of them all.
