RULES OF CHECKERS. Here are the rules of checkers in case you don't know how to play:

Checkers is played with two players who take turns moving the checker pieces across the board. Usually one opponent has red checkers, the other has black.

You can move a check one space only, except when jumping. You can only move your piece one space forward diagonally. You cannot move pieces backward.

Remove opponent's pieces by "jumping". You can jump if you are next to the opponent's piece and there is an open square on the other side where you will land.

Exception: You can move a piece backward when you achieve a "King". To king your pieces, reach the last row on the opposite side of the board. Kings can move forward or backward.

Important Rule: You must jump an opponent if you can do so.

Win the game by taking all your opponent's pieces. You can also win by blocking your opponent from moving.

GAME TIP #1: Many games on this site such as Curveball were built with Adobe Flash. To play these games, you must allow the free Adobe Flash Player to run in your browser. If you don't see an animation in the red rectangle above, click in the red rectangle and activate your Flash Player. Then the Flash-based games should open for you.

If you see a message that the Adobe Flash Player is "blocked", go to your browser's Settings page and change Block to Ask First, if possible.

If the red rectangle is empty, your browser might not have the Flash Player. To check this, follow the steps on Adobe's Flash Player Help page.

GAME TIP #2: If you cannot get the Flash-based brain games to work, try the HTML5 brain games instead. HTML5 games do not use the Adobe Flash Player. They work in modern browsers automatically. All the HTML5 games are listed on this page.
