|Checkers is a game for two players.
It is played on an 8x8 checkered board, with a dark square in each player's lower left
In checkers, pieces move only on dark squares which
are numbered. Numbers are used to record the moves, for example,
if Red moves from square 9 to square 13, then it is recorded as: 9-13
Each player controls its own army of pieces (men). The player who
controls Red pieces moves first. The pieces (also known as 'men') are arranged as
shown on the left.
The goal in the checkers game is either to
capture all of the opponent's pieces or to blockade them. If neither player can accomplish
the above, the game is a draw.
