Free Internet Checkers Instructions

Checkers is a classic strategy board game. The rules are simple but the game can be challenging!

This cool game lets you play three versions of checkers. My favorite is "Extreme" speed checkers.

HOW TO PLAY. First, select which version of free internet checkers you want to play.

There are three options:

(1) STANDARD. Click the Standard button to play regular checkers.

(2) GIVEAWAY. Click the Giveaway button to play a "give away" version of checkers. Your goal is to force the computer to take all of your pieces!

(3) EXTREME. Click the Extreme button to play speed checkers. With speed checkers you just move as fast as you can without taking turns.

To move a piece, simply drag it with the mouse.

OPTIONS. You can make this free internet checkers game easier or more challenging by using the up/down slider to the right of the game menu. Choose Hard, Good, Normal, or Easy to set the level of difficulty.

RULES OF CHECKERS. For those who don't know how to play checkers, here are the basic rules:

Checkers is played with two opponents - in this case, you versus the computer. Each side takes turns.

Each turn, you can only move a piece one space forward diagonally. You cannot move pieces backward. The player (you) moves first, then the computer makes its move.

You can remove an opponent's piece by "jumping". You can jump a piece if you are next to the piece and there is an open square on the other side of the opponent's piece (i.e., the square where your piece will land).

The only time you can move a piece backward is when you achieve a "King". To king your pieces, you must reach the last row on the opposite side of the board.

Kings can move forward or backward.

Important Rule: If you can jump an opponent, you must do so.

You can win the game by taking all your opponent's pieces or by blocking your opponent from making any more legal moves.

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.
