Description

Looking for a game of Checkers? Offering 5 skill levels, it is up to you to capture all your opponents pieces on the game board. You are allowed to move a single space in one direction (up) if no jumps are available. If you are able to jump an opponent's piece, you must do so. Jumping an opponent's piece (or pieces if you can do a multiple jump), captures the piece(s).

If you get any of your pieces to the farthest end of the board, you are "kinged". This means that your piece can now move in any direction; offering a distinct advantage.

The game allows for 0 to 2 human players. The computer will make up the remaining players to equal 2 players total. You can choose to play as red or black, and can even switch sides.
