Not as simple as that .
My first game ever . The 10 goes for the amazing times I spent playing it as a child .
Otherwise maybe I'd give it a 6 .

One of my favorite games, and is a true classic. This is probably the game I have played the most in my life, and definetly the game I played the most as a child with my dad and grandfather who were deadly at this game. This game can be bought anywhere for a low investment, and is a great two person game. It is an abstract game, so skill alone will determine the winner, but this game doesn't require the intensity of Chess.

I don't know why this game is ranked so low on BGG. It doesn't take a long time to play or set up. The rules are simple to learn. It is cheap. You can buy plastic pieces if you love Ameritrash, or you can buy wooden pieces if you like Euros.

It must be played by the rules; IE: Compulsory jumps. Two expert Checkers players will result in a draw more than Chess, but how many times are you going to be playing an expert Checkers player?

My favorite move is the double jump, to King Me!

I almost never play anymore but my fondest memories of my father are the two of us playing checkers... and me beating him mercilessly again and again.

For $2 I got a magnetic set and put it on the fridge door. Using the left-over pieces matrix as the "next move marker" Emma and I have had some great games stretched over hours and days. Perrfect.

A Classic so a "10" in my book.

This game reminds me of my childhood. My grandpa made all of his grandchildren play him in this game (and there were a lot of us) when we went to visit him on weekends and he always played to win. Absolutely no mercy no matter your age. He also played that you had to "jump" which looking back now maybe was an advantage for him because I don't know anyone else that enfores this rule so he is seasoned in playing this version of Checkers. To be honest, I don't even know if "forced jumping" is a rule.

Checkers is a simple game yet one I have never mastered. In fact, I just played my grandpa who turned 90 years old this year and guess what - I lost again. I thought for sure at our advanced ages I could finally take him but nothing has changed since I was a kid. Well actually a lot has changed but not when in comes to our game of Checkers.

A big fan of this game as it reminds me of my childhood and of Sunday afternoons with grandpa and the rest of my extended family.

jumping is mandatory.
But as a kid, did not learn that way.

Check out "Turkish Checkers"

This game goes well with a cool glass of lemonade to drink and a barrel top as a playing surface.

I think it is much underrated because people play it naively or with incorrect rules.
Though very drawish, checkers played at tournament level has great depth and surprising tactical blows.

The international version is even more interesting.

How anyone can rate this game lower than 7 is beyond me. Sure, chess has more variation in terms of moves and strategy, but draughts is just as challenging. Anyone who claims otherwise is either playing the game incorrectly or just thinks that simplicity equates to unchallenging.

I don't care if it's been solved, it's still deep. Worth playing against human opponents. Makes nice puzzles.

Usually play this on a 10 by 10 (European?) board. There is a lot more to this game than the meager rating suggests. Granted, it is not chess or go, but it is a very good abstract, with very few rules. The 9 rating is absolutely not a shill.
