The board game Checkers is played on an 8x8 board and each player has 12 checker pieces. This is a head to head game, so play against the computer's artificial intelligence or a friend's intelligence! Red checkers will always go first. Checkers may only move diagonally one space, with the exception of jumping. A checker may move more than one space if they can jump one of the opponent's checker pieces which is located immediately in their diagonal vicinity and onto a free space. Multiple jumps can occur. To move a checker, click the checker you wish to move and then click the spot you'd like to move onto.
When you jump a checker of the opposite color, the checker is removed from the board. Move your checkers into your opponent's row to get kinged. Kinged checkers can move forward and backward so these are very valuable. Whichever player jumps and removes all their player's checkers wins.
Be sure to check out the Options in the beginning to choose your difficulty level, options for forced jumps, guides for where checkers can move, and more! Enjoy playing 24/7 Checkers today!
