    "Jump and double jump"

    Everyone knows it's good to be king. Jump your way across the board to crowning glory in ZingMagic Limited's Checkers V, a mobile version of the classic board game.

    You already know the rules: scoot your pieces diagonally across the board, jumping the other player's pieces to eliminate them from play. Reach the other side for king status, allowing you to move both forwards and backwards. Over ten variations of the game will keep you entertained for a good long while; these include English Draughts, Junior Checkers (which makes jumping not mandatory), and even Suicide Checkers - can you lose all your pieces first? Personally, I want to learn to play Czech Checkers, because, c'mon, it already sounds awesome.

    There are many visual and gameplay settings you can tweak to personalize your experience.

    Still, ZingMagic Limited's Checkers V is a great choice for fans of the the classic board game, especially those looking to try out its regional variants.

    Welcome to the 2019 edition of Checkers. Apparently AI and Machine Learning is all the rage this year. Meanwhile the 2019 edition celebrates 16 years of ZingMagic bringing you the best in AI based board, card and puzzle games. So, yes, we mastered artificial intelligence along time ago!

    Checkers is the classic strategy board game with the goal of capturing all the opponent's pieces. The game is deceptively simple yet full of intricacy as those that take on the Expert level will find.

    Steeped in history, games similar to Checkers were played by the early Egyptian Pharaohs (c.1600 BC) & were even mentioned in the works of the Greek writers Homer & Plato. The modern game dates back to around the 12th century.

    Checkers now supports over 10 different variations of the modern game:

    * American Checkers
    * American Checkers with 3-move opening.
    * English Draughts
    * Junior Checkers (captures not mandatory)
    * International Checkers
    * Brazilian Checkers
    * Czech Checkers
    * Italian Checkers
    * Portuguese Checkers
    * Spanish Checkers
    * Russian Checkers
    * American Pool Checkers
    * Suicide Checkers
