Wu Yisi, Mohd Nor Akmal Khalid, Hiroyuki Iida

Game refinement theory has been used as a reliable tool for measuring the attractiveness and entertainment of games, which is derived from a game information progress model and has been applied in various games. This study aims to explore the entertainment of popular multiplayer game-Chinese checkers. The experiments in this study investigated the entertainment of Chinese checkers by creating different battle modes of Chinese checkers. The results show that the three players battle mode has the highest game refinement value among four battle modes, and the recommended number of players is three people. It is recommended that more master level players participate in the game will make the game more interesting. Consider the impact of board piece settings on game experience; the study compares the playability among three board pieces of Chinese checkers, which are six pieces, ten pieces, and 15 pieces. The results found the justification for the ten pieces to be the mainstream version, while six pieces version provides consistent play experience regardless of player number.
