|Game description of Checkers:
Checkers is also known as Draughts. It is thought to have originated from an ancient game called Alquerque or Qirkat.
Press the play icon on the startup screen.
Select game mode: Play against a friend (2 player game) or play against the computer (1 player game).
The game is played by two opponents who faces each other on opposite sides of the checkers gameboard. One of the players has the dark colour pieces and the other one has the light colour pieces.
The two players alternate turns in the game. It is not legal to move an opponent's piece. A player can move a piece diagonally to an adjacent unoccupied square. If one of the opponent's pieces occupy that adjacent square, and the square immediately beyond it is vacant, the opponent's piece may be captured and removed from the game by jumping over it.
When one of the pieces reaches the other side of the board (the row farthest from the player), called the "king" "row" or "crownhead", the piece will become "king" and is marked by adding an additional piece on top of it. In this online game, the kings are marked with a crown. Kings have the ability to move and capture backwards as well as forwards.
