Jaques has invented some of the worlds most loved and popular games, including Snakes and Ladders, Happy Families and Tiddledy Winks.
It is of no surprise that the company that invented Happy Families has been passed down, father to son, for seven generations.
The distinctive illustrations that adorn a packet of Jaques Happy Families were drawn by Sir John Tenniel, famously chief cartoonist at Punch and illustrator of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland.
Pachisi, a precursor of Jaques Ludo, was played by the Mughal emperors of India using costumed dancers instead of pieces.

Jaques Chinese Checkers board is a circular board handcrafted from solid wood and features glossy coloured wooden pegs.

Chinese checkers is a classic board game for 2, 3, 4 or 6 players.

Each player has ten pegs of one colour at one starting point of the star. The objective of the wood game is to occupy the star point directly opposite. The first player to accomplish this is a winner. Of course if in the same round more than one players reach the end point all of them are winners.

Each player moves in turn, (in this implementation clockwise). A move consists of placing a peg into one of the adjacent holes or jumping over any other one peg into a hole beyond. The direction of the move has to be one of the following: left/right, forward left/right, backward left/right in a players direction of play. Only one move is made at a time, except when jumping. Then the player can make any number of jumps in any direction as long as all the moves consist of jumps. Players may jump their own or their opponents' pegs. No pegs are removed from the board during play.
