Checkers existed as early as 3,000 BC, and it was played in ancient Egypt. Known as “draughts” in England, checkers is played by two players. Each side has 12 checkers, one side light and the other dark.
The checkerboard has 64 light and dark squares. Players alternate moving a checker one forward square at a time, diagonally. They jump and capture (thereby removing) an opponent’s piece occupying an adjacent square. Whoever has checkers left on the checkerboard at game’s end wins.
