Down the Tubes is basically Chinese Checkers with a twist. The six sections that make up the board can be rearranged in a great number of ways to make play unpredictable. Simply put, some of the spaces you move your pegs to are deeper than the others, so your peg falls out of the game. You may then use this space as your piece stands on the last piece. You must choose your movement carefully and try to remember which spaces are safe!
