Gnome Chinese Checkers

Latest Version : 1.9.0

Last Revised : March 3, 2003


Gnome Chinese Checkers is an implementation of the Chinese Checkers board game. It includes a server that can support upto 6 players, all of whom connect from their own clients. The game includes added goodies like an integrated chat window, automatic player rotation, computer bots, and more. This game is dedicated to Nadia Haq, a good friend with whom I've wasted away countless hours playing board games like this.

I just released (after a long time), a new version. The basic news is that it is now ported to Gnome 2.0, along with many changes that such a port entails.
