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.

Grabbed at Savers for $2.79 after 30% off. It's in a tin that's a checkers/tic tac toe combo. Complete and in great shape.

EDIT: I forgot to mention it was a Super Mario Bros checkers/tic tac toe set.

Extreme goals:

1. 1000 total plays - current total:
I would like to rack up at least 1000 plays of anything this year. Had a nice start last year but failed.

2. 1 x 100 (Checkers) - current total:
I want to play something 100 times. Set this same goal last year but didn't get there.

3. 20 x 20 [continuing on from my 10x10 list]
