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.
