Checkers Instructions

You need 2 players to play Checkers. Move your avatar onto a red cushion to play. Each player starts with 12 checkers.

The object of the game is to capture or block all the other player's checkers.

You move your checkers diagonally one square at a time, unless you can jump over a single checker belonging to the other player. If you make a jump, you capture and remove the other player's checkers. You can make several jumps on the same turn using the original moved checker.

Normally, you can move only forward. If your checker reaches the opposite side of the board, it turns into a King which can then move and jump forwards and backwards.

To take your turn, click on a checker of your color. Then, click again on the square you want to move your checker into.
