Checkers is a classic game of strategy for two people. Each player tries to eliminate all of the opponent's options for moving by capturing or blocking their pieces. Each player takes a turn moving one of their own coloured pieces forward onto a free black square. If a square is occupied by an opponent's piece, but the square beyond it is free, the player may jump his opponent's piece and take it. The player who has the last piece on the game board is the winner.
