One of the first board games that people learn how to play is checkers. A lot of people still find this fun and exciting.

If you want to play, these are just a few things that you can do:

• The opponent that will come with the darker checkers pieces will start moving first.

• You can only move your pieces one diagonal space forward.

• You can only move towards your opponent’s side.

• If you would like to get some of the opponent’s pieces, you need to jump and “eat” the piece.

• This means that you need to move two diagonal spaces instead of one.

One person will win if the opponent’s pieces are not available anymore.

Checkers is a fun and classic game that is played with two people. To win a match of checkers, you have to move your pieces toward your opponent’s side of the board.

Kick off the match.

• The competitor with the black checkers moves first.

• The checkers must stay on the dark squares.

• Jump and capture your opponent’s checkers.

• If the checker is located in the diagonal space nearest to your opponent’s checker, then you can jump and capture in order to capture a checker, hop over it by relocating two diagonal spaces in the path of the checker as if you are hopping over your challenger's checker.

• Once you seize the checker, you can take it off the board.

• You will King, your checkers when they arrive at the edge of your enemy's play board.

• To crown a checker and make it a king’s checker, place your own captured pieces on top of it.

• The king can move forward and backward.

• When a king is securing checkers, it can move forward and backward on the same turn.

• Continue vaulting and seizing your foe's checkers until they are all eliminated play from the playboard.

• Once you have secured all of your enemy's checkers, you have won the game.
