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.

Normally, I never pick up any checkers sets. I found a really cool set at a local estate sale. $2 for a set of Kingsway felted and weighted checkers with crowns.

The world has lost its respect for Checkers. I had no respect for Checkers. I played it on occasion as a child then left it behind. It's was weakly solved in 2007 and is currently in a nursing home waiting to be put out of its misery.

My mind was changed and respect found after I read Jonathan Shaeffer's book - 'One Jump Ahead: Computer Perfection at Checkers'. A great book highly recommend! Reading about Marion Tinsley blew me away. I couldn't believe I'd never heard of him. One of greatest game players who has ever lived and a man who never got the attention he deserved.

I was staggered by the tales told in that book about his abilities at Checkers. When he played Chinook (the program that solved Checkers) it wasn't 'Man v Machine' no, it was 'Machine v Machine'.

After reading I was in the mood to buy a set and learn the game properly. Then the total lack of care Checkers has became apparent... Black checkers on black squares, red checkers camouflaged in red squares. Packaging with boards set up incorrectly pictured on the front. It was a sorry state. I had to go directly to the American Checkers federation to get a semi worthy board.

Marion is the guy in my avatar. He's worth looking into.
