Fun Facts:
Checkers, also known as Draughts in Europe, has been around since 300 BCE. Its predecessor, Alquerques , originated in the Middle East around 1400 BCE. Egyptians played a version using a 5 x 5 square board. During the 2nd millennia a Frenchman created the more recognized version we play today. He created a chess board and increased the number of pieces to twelve per player. During this time, the game’s rules added mandatory jumping of the pieces.
