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. 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!
