Another of my daughter's favorite games, so most of these have been with her. As with Kalah, she is a strong player and not to be underestimated! My son and I have played a few rounds, but usually only after it's already on the table from a session with my daughter.

Box of checkers was part of my hangy bag. Looked old but no date.

I love the Pay Less price tag for 23 cents.

Three (2 red, 1 black) of the originals have been replaced by imposters. Supposed I could find ones that matched the originals?

$3 Lord of the Rings checkers set. Rings look cool, but I think they are plastic.

Neat little set of Lord of the Rings checkers. No pics on BGG yet.

The board has the map background.

Pieces are rings. Missing 4 gold and 1 silver.

I didn't really buy to play so no problem (wouldn't turn down some replacements though). I just thought the rings were cool and could be used somewhere else.

There are lots of regional checkers rules that are distinct from American/English checkers, and a number of these can be played with an American/English checkers set, such as Russian Checkers, Czech Checkers, Thai Checkers, Brazilian Checkers, Portuguese Checkers, and Italian Checkers. (There are separate BGG entries for most of these checkers versions.)

There are also variants of American/English checkers, e.g. Anti-Checkers, One Way Checkers, Parachute Checkers, etc. These variants (and the regional variants above) are usefully summarized at the checkers rules page of Brainking.com.

Am I ridiculous for bothering to mark checkers as "owned" on BGG?

Yes it's idiotic, everyone has a copy of Snakes and Ladders in their house somewhere, that doesn't mean you should boast about it - BGG is about "hobby" games, if everyone did this the site would be less helpful because it would show crappy games as being hugely more popular than the kind of modern games we're curious about, WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS TO ME

This game is just far to simplistic. Even as a fairly young child I liked chess a lot better. I played this 1 time in 2016.

Big ol' jar of checkers, chess, meeples, timers, etc. $5. I might have messed up an artsy display because next to it were two smaller jars of marbles and a medium jar full of monopoly houses etc.

Rejected:
Ninjago and Lego Pirate game - the store won't let you check completeness
Rummikub - already have
Gossip Girl: The Game - why is this a thing.





Edit: here is everything laid out:


Looks like 2 partial chess sets, 3 partial checker sets, a whole lot of random pieces, and a timer.

Wondering if I should go back for the monopoly house jar. Yes/no?

Lord of the Rings Checkers / Tic Tac Toe

$2.99 at GW (complete).



I figured I would pick this up just for the 24 Rings of Power!

This way I have one for every finger (and every toe).


Speaking of appendages, I also picked up the following item for $2.99 (the box was opened but all the contents were still nicely stored in their individual baggies):

Nippon Edition Gosei Great Megazord








I never really cared for Power Rangers, but this looked too cool to pass up (plus, this item goes for quite a bit apparently, if I ever was to want to flip it online).

Perhaps the most underrated old strategy game that's still clinging to life in today's world. Elegantly simple, yet deep enough to provide a lifelong challenge for most people.

And I'm talking about the 8x8 English/American game. These days there's a whole family of checkers games to choose from.

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

Also managed to play a number of variants for the first time this year: Czech Checkers, Turkish Checkers, &c. The wiki has a good overview of the whole Checkers family.
