How To Play: CHECKERS
1. Each player takes 12 pieces of the same colour (pink or orange).
2. For the checkers games set up, each player arranges their game pieces closest to them on the board. Place a piece on every other dark square, creating staggered rows.
3. Each player takes their turn by moving a piece. Pieces are always moved diagonally.
You can move in the following ways:
Forward Diagonally to the next dark square.
Jumping diagonally over your opponents piece, moving to the next dark square.
When you jump over a piece you collect it.
4. You win the game when your opponent either has no more pieces left or cannot move. If neither player can move it is a tie.
If you're feeling more confident in your playing skills, you can use the same pieces you used for the game of checkers to play a game of chess. Simply use chalk or a whiteboard marker to signify the different pieces and away you go!
