# How to Play Checkers

How to Play Checkers. This game may seem old-fashioned, but it’s
just as challenging as a video game—and your grandparents will actually know how to
play it! You will need A checker board 12.0 black checkers
12.0 red checkers and another player. Step 1. Sit across from the other player, with the
board between you. Turn the board so that you each have a red
corner square on your right. If your board isn’t black and red, just imagine
that the lighter color on your board is red, and the darker color is black to follow these
instructions. Step 2. Decide who’s going first. You can flip a coin, base it on who won the
last game, or just agree. Whatever you choose, the starting player gets
the black checkers and the other player gets the red. Step 3. Set up the board. Each player arranges all twelve of his checkers
on the black squares (and only black squares!) of the first three rows of his side of the
board. Step 4. The first player (black) begins by moving
any one of his checkers in the row closest to the middle of the board diagonally one
space. Checkers can only move diagonally, which means
the game is played entirely on the black squares. Step 5. The next player moves one of his checkers
diagonally one space. At this stage of the game, you can only move
your pieces forward. Step 6. Keep taking turns this way, moving another
checker or the same checker further forward. Step 7. On your turn, if your opponent’s checker is
in front of you—that is, on a black square diagonal to yours—and there’s an empty square
on the other side, you can jump your checker over his, landing in the empty square. Take the other player’s checker that you just
jumped over off the board and put it to the side. Remember: if your checker is jumpable on your
opponent’s turn, he can jump and capture it, so before that happens, try to move out of
the way or fill in the empty square behind you so there’s no place for him to jump. Step 8. You can jump over and capture more than one
checker in a turn. Just remember that there must be one empty
square between each one, so that you’re leapfrogging one checker at a time—not long-jumping over
two. Step 9. Continue to take turns moving and jumping. If you manage to get a checker all the way
to the other side of the board, tell your opponent, ‘Crown me!’ He’ll have to take one of the checkers of
yours that he captured and place it on top of your checker. Now you’ve got a tall ‘king’ that can move
both forward and backward. Step 10. Continue to take turns moving, jumping, and
being crowned, until one player captures all of the other’s checkers. Did you know Checkers is such an old game
that Egyptian kings played it while the pyramids were being built—around 4,000 years ago!

27. Jackie Mccoy says:

Did u know that u can slite your king the end and the middle and did u know that you can move three aways

28. BAC2victory says:

Thats not excactly the real standerd way of playing cheackers. First off all red (or white) goes first not black secong off all the king moves any number of spaces in a strait line backward and foward, and your obligated to eat the players pieces if an opportunity, but you can play by different rules if you want to, its okay but your not describing the standard checkers game that is used in compitition

29. Tenia Roberts says:

These rules are not complete as played by my boyfriend

30. Yoshifan0312 says:

I play this with most of the same rules, just minor changes. For instance, I don't do the double stack thing with the king. Also, I don't do double jumps (when you can have your checker jump twice if there is a gap).

31. david cardenas says:

Actually that's not how you set up the board.. The black corner square goes on the left.. Not the right.
