    The question may be whether the optimum stategy is a learnable heuristic or computationally inscrutable.

    i have played chinese checkers for few time. ofcourse i'm not an expert. but i have a lot of friends that are expert in this field. if you want to know the strategy, there is a lot of books out that teach you strategy about chinese checkers. i heard that the strategy is just like the strtegy for a real war.

    The strategy is the same as Chess. You have general, soldiers, carts, cannons, horses, and officers protecting the general.
