I taught this to my daughter a few years ago (she would have been 5 or 6 I think). I explained how to move, how to capture, the fact you have to capture, kings. I think we had made a few move each when she asked "how do you win?"

I know what you are thinking... "Checkers? Checkers!? Come on man!"
We were returning from my younger daughter's soccer game and spotted a GW, so we (actually I made an executive decision) turned in. My older daughter went in with me to help hunt. Did see Coda, but left it behind. The last game we come to is checkers so I turn to leave and my daughter says, "I want to get this."

I told her we have checkers at home. She tells me her teacher is doing "game hour" on Fridays and needs games for the class to play. So we get checkers to donate to the school.

How come my middle school never did game hour on Fridays? Clearly I went to the wrong school.

Edit: Forgot the price - $2

Little Fish the Elder's school has this reward system where a student receives a 'doujou point' for good behaviour/academic results/something else. When they receive a certain number of points they can choose a small reward from the 'prize locker'. The first couple of times he got this he picked books, but the last one her chose a small box with a set of Checkers. We set it up the other night,, I explained the rules and we played a few games. As I played I tried to explain what move I was making, why I was making it and what I was planning for upcoming turns.

He got really frustrated when he lost by pretty big margins which was surprising as he's usually pretty good about this sort of thing. Maybe it was the fact it was 'his' game that caused him grief. Anyway, we teamed up and played his aunt and mother and we got a good win in which cheered him up. I was quite happy he chose a game as his prize.

Apart from the usual lunchtime gaming where Parade was the game of the week I managed to get away on Saturday afternoon/evening for a session at the local boardgames café (called 'Guild' in what passes for Canberra's CBD). The original concept was that four of us would meet and stay there for the 'long haul'. As it turn out one was ill and another had to leave early.

While I was waiting for the other myself and my regular wargames opponent played Splendor from the games library at Guild. This was my first play and I rather enjoyed it as an engaging little filler. When the three of us were assembled we cracked out Spartacus: A Game of Blood & Treachery and had a rather fun three way game. The game itself is a bit dice/luck heavy but is quite fun. In the end we had a three way tie for first that was settled in the arena. My best gladiator was killed by a couple of poor heal rolls (one by a specialist apothecary) so I lost but all players seemed to enjoy it which was good. To change it up we played
which went well and was very close.

After that one chum left and I played more Splendor with the other chap as we ordered and ate dinner. When the plates were cleared away we played a couple of two player games of Scythe which were more about building one's engine than conflict. I got flogged in both games but enjoyed them. We finished with Hyperborea which was a bit of fun. the bag-seeding/action nomination mechanisms worked quite well.

So, not a bad week for gaming.

How ridiculous that this actually has a BGG listing!

Anyway, don't look at the stock pic. This is what you get:



AND, it's also Shotglass Chess!

From the appropriately named company iPartyHard (strange that Steve Jobs hadn't already locked that name up).

It's big and heavy. Plan accordingly.

You want it.

We called it "Draughts". My first strategy game but I never really liked this one much and never felt like I got the knack of it.

Avg. rating: 4.84
My rating: 9

Yeah, I admire traditional board games, especially games as deep and timeless as this one. It stumped me as a kid when my dad taught me to play, and it's still an extremely challenging game for me now, half a century later. I don't play often, as I'm not usually up to the challenge, but I admire the game nevertheless.

It's elegantly simple, and it's one of those "minute to learn, lifetime to master" games.

It's also a whole family of games. But even the 8x8 English/American game I know best is a top-notch "thinking" game that rivals chess.

For info and inspiration, see Bob Newell's Checker Maven site.

Pieces can move and jump backward after reaching the far edge of the board.

Does move vs. jump also count?

An interesting game of chess gets sabotaged when all the pieces are squashed flat into round discs, and assigned the same simple move.
