All Natural Wood Checkers and Tic-Tac-Toe Set
Descended from the Arabic game Alquerque, then adapted in the south
of France in the twelfth century using backgammon pieces on a chess
board, the game of Checkers, or Draughts, has a long and storied
history. The game is played worldwide with dozens of international rules
and board sizes, but this All Natural Wood Checkers and Tic-Tac-Toe Set follows the rules of American
checkers, which are the simplest and most straightforward. With just 64
squares on the board and 12 pieces per side, American checkers is a
perfect board game to teach children and other board game beginners.
Upgrade from the old, folding cardboard to all natural wood. This
wood board is 11" square and includes 24 wooden checkers just under 1"
in diameter in shades of dark brown and cream. The layout of 8 rows and 8
columns of squares follows standard American checkers rules, which are
as easy as this: you may only move your pieces, diagonally, one square
at a time; if you can capture an opponent's adjacent piece by jumping
over it, you must; pieces that reach the last row are 'kinged,' and can
now move both forwards and backwards. All Natural Wood Checkers and Tic-Tac-Toe Set has simple rules, quality wood, and of
course, no batteries required!
And don't forget, on the back there's a Tic-Tac-Toe board. Get two classic games for the price of one!
