Turn Yourself Into A Checker Champion Practically Overnight

Aug 17, 2007
To play checkers badly is quite easy; and that is the way most people do play it.

Even if you don`t play a perfect game of checkers, you can still enjoy the game. But checkers as the experts play it, with all its richness of ideas and exquisite economy of force is much more fun. It is always more gratifying to play expertly and to win, than it is to flounder. That is why this book has been written. Its purpose is to enable you to play like an expert so that you will derive greater enjoyment and keener appreciation of the beauty of the game.

Checkers is played by two opponents. The checkers are placed on a board which has 64 squares, colored alternately light and dark. Only the dark squares are used.

Each player starts with 12 men. One set of men is known as Black, the other as White. (In practice, the two most common color combinations are black for the dark color and red for the light or, sometimes, red for the dark and white for the light color.)

Whatever the actual colors used, Black is the official name for the dark color and White for the light color.

Note that when you set up the men at the beginning of a game, a dark single corner square is at each player`s left.

In order to describe and record moves, it is customary to number the 32 squares on the checkerboard which are in use during a game. If you take a checked board and number going from left to right, top to bottom, and number them from 1 to 32, you`ll get a visual picture.

Here is how the board would look if you number it. Remember number them from left to right.

W = White Block
B = Black Block
W B W B W B W B . Black 1 to 4
B W B W B W B W . Black 5 to 8
(REPEAT AND PUT CHECKER TEXT HERE) Black 9 to 12
Black 13 to 16
Black 17 to 20
Black 21 to 24
Black 25 to 28
Black 29 to 32

To record a move, you give the number of the square on which a man stands, followed by a dash and the number of the square to which it moves. For example, 11 15 means, "the man on 11 moves to 15."

In this connection, here is a word of advice which will help you become a proficient student of checkers and will also increase your playing skill enormously while at the same time giving you a finer imaginative grasp of the game. When you buy a checkerboard, get one with numbered squares. These are available in many stores and cost no more than the ordinary, unnumbered boards.

Constant use of the numbered checkerboard will make the numbering system second nature to you, so that you will be able to read off the moves effortlessly and concentrate fully on the material you are studying.

If you find it impossible to obtain a numbered checkerboard, you can number the squares on an ordinary checkerboard to achieve the same effect.

You are now familiar with a simple tactic tip of checkers and with some of the elementary winning methods and skills you`ll be on your way to be a champion in no time flat.
