Chinese Checkers

Chinese checkers probably do not come from the Far East, despite their name. On the other hand, Chinese checkers are a variant of the game Halma, a game created in England at the end of the 19th century by the American George Howard Monks, who invented a game called Halma, a name derived from the ancient Greek meaning "jump" but also an ancient pentathlon event. This first version of the game is played on the grids of a 16x16 square board. The version we know today was adapted under the name Stern-Halma (Halma: star) and patented in 1892 by the German company Ravensburger. This version of the game is played on a star-shaped game board. However, it can be seen that there is a rather similar version on a star-shaped board in Asia... When the game was first marketed in the United States by the company J.Pressman & Co. under the name "Hop Ching", the expression "Chinese Checkers" was used for the first time. However, this game in its initial square form is still called "Halma" in many countries... Gift idea for playing with the family, a very nice wooden board game gift. Original gift idea for a birthday, or for the end of the year celebrations.

Quantity

The aim of this game of strategy, also called Chinese star, is to take first place to the other side of the board.

Star Chinese chequers is an entertaining and educational game where your own figures have to jump over as many of the opposing figures as possible and to interfere them doing their jumps.

Tiles Buy unusual and original kdo tiles, incomparable and unique personalized surprises, funny or unique gifts all is possible from Gifts-custopolis-gifts.com The term "tiling" originally referred to the laying of tiles and then, by metonymy, to the result of this act. It then refers to a floor or wall covering made of ceramic tiles - terracotta tiles, earthenware tiles, stoneware tiles (often called porcelain stoneware) - or marble or cement tiles or vinyl tiles. These different types of tiles are laid side by side and then glued or sealed. Tiles are commonly used to finish and decorate floors and walls in homes and other buildings, both indoors and outdoors. In construction, tiling is done by the tiler. Tiles are usually thin, square or rectangular tiles made of durable materials such as ceramic, stone, metal, terracotta or even glass.

Clock to personalise




Clocks Since time immemorial, people have tried to tame time. Thanks to scientific discoveries and technical innovations, the measurement of time has gradually been mastered. For thousands of years, people have measured time in a variety of ways, including following the movements of the sun with sundials, using water clocks, candle clocks and hourglasses. Our modern basic 60 time system, a clock with periods of 60 minutes and 60 seconds, dates back to 2000 BC in ancient Sumeria (the southernmost region of ancient Mesopotamia). History of clocks; "Time is money", they say, but the history of clocks is long and fascinating. The measurement of time is one of the earliest developments of mankind and time has changed greatly since ancient times. The birth of clocks to measure time: A clock is a time-measuring instrument that usually tells the time continuously. The word comes from the Latin horologium, "that tells the time", itself derived from the Greek ὡρολόγιον (formed from oρα, "time", and λέγειν, "to tell", λόγιον, "to tell"). Since ancient times, the Latin term 'horologium' has been used to refer to any instrument capable of indicating time, which has often led to difficulties in interpreting ancient texts. Thus, a sundial, a water clock, an astrolabe, a nocturlabe, a mechanical clock were called "horologia". A clock with a photo of your holiday by the sea, in the mountains or in the countryside. There's nothing better to cheer you up when the holidays are over or when the weather is not good. These are custom photo gifts, photo gifts ideas, to personalise gifts photo, to personalise with photos

White mug with teenage...





History of the cup Tea was introduced during the Chinese Han Dynasty (206 BC - 220 AD). The more than four centuries of Han Dynasty rule are widely regarded as one of the "golden ages" of Chinese history. With the beginning of the Han Dynasty, the pottery industry developed and many types of vessels appeared on the market. The need for a container to drink tea led to the development of the cup, especially the handleless cup in China. Europe discovered tea in the 17th century with the development of trade relations between East and West, but Europeans preferred to drink their tea very hot. The handle was therefore invented in Europe by the German Johann Friedrich Bottger in 1707. In France, the ordinances of 1699 and 1709, which restricted the use of precious metals, encouraged the development of ceramics, particularly earthenware and porcelain, which played an increasingly important role in the creation of cabarets (lunch services) for serving exotic drinks. Throughout the 18th century, there were many innovations in decoration, technique and form.

White mug with artwork




History of the cup We know the story of the pottery kiln from an ancient Chinese poem, the "Shuihuzhuan" (poem about the origin of objects). It reads as follows... There was once a man named Zhou Bo, who had a son named Lu Buwei, who had a daughter named Jiang Wei. Jiang Wei was the first person to make porcelain ware, which she then presented to her father, who liked it so much that he gave her this land, where she built a kiln and started making pots for sale, with her father's blessing (he needed the money, after all!). She sold them very well and soon became rich; however, she wanted to give something back to her parents for their generosity, so she asked her father if he would accept these two cups, which she said were the best ever made. One day Lu Buwei decided to build a kiln so that his sister, Jiang Wei, could make pots. He went into the forest to collect clay and saw beautiful pieces of glazed porcelain lying in the ground among the roots of the trees! He took them home, and the next morning he called his son, Lu Buwei, and told him to take these pieces of porcelain to make pots, and then took him to see the kiln where they had been collected.

Clock with label to...




History of the clock from its origins to the 16th century, The origins No mechanical clocks seem to exist before the fourteenth century, but several mentions in manuscript sources reveal some of the early history of the clock. The Latin word horologium, horologia, derived from the Greek [ὡρα, time and λέγειν, to say], has been used since Roman antiquity to refer to all time-indicating devices, but the use of this word for all time-measuring instruments hides from us the true nature of their mechanisms. The hydraulic clock A hydraulic clock is an ancient type of clock, which tells the time by allowing a liquid in a container to flow through a small hole. From the beginning, in ancient times, the liquid used was water, hence the name water clock. Later, mercury clocks could be found, especially in Arabic and Chinese writings, but this seems to be anecdotal. The first hydraulic clocks evolved from the simple clepsydra (see the France 2 television game show), to which a more or less sophisticated time indication was added (essentially a graduated scale); over the centuries, we have encountered different types of hydraulic clocks, monumental or not, with sophistications to animate skits, for example, or to strike a precise time.
