Pressman Toy Corporation introduced a game it called Chinese Checkers, specifically under the name "Hop Ching Checkers," in 1928. Though neither Chinese in origin nor a version of checkers, the game became popular. The Antiseptic manufacturer Campho-Phenique made a printed version of the game called "Luc Sing" in 1939. This would be given away as a premium by a retailer with purchase of the product.
