How to Play $15 @ Tai On Build­ing, Sai Wan Ho

Largely re­sem­bling the boardgame Ludo, Aero­plane Chess gets its name from its play­ing pieces, which have planes painted on top. The board is di­vided into four ar­eas by color. The ob­jec­tive is sim­ple: The first player to move all their planes to the fin­ish wins. Start­ing from the “hangars” at the cor­ners, roll the dice to de­cide the num­ber of steps your plane moves each turn.

On the sub­ject of board games, the mar­ble-based “Chi­nese check­ers” was in­vented in Ger­many in 1892 and had noth­ing to do with China—it was just given the name to make it sound more “mys­te­ri­ous.”
