Checkers - Box

DescriptionSubmit Description
Activision's Checkers is a visually pleasing version of the classic board game, and one of Activision's initial four games. Checkers follows the same rules as the board game that most of us grew up playing. For example, if you can jump you must, if a piece is jumped it is removed from gameplay, and so forth. You can choose to play against the computer at three different difficulty levels (novice, intermediate, or advanced), as well as against a human opponent. There are no cool Activision patches for Checkers, but who needs a patch when you can have the satisfaction of beating a 25 year old computer! (Contributed by panda_racer)
