    "EXCELLENT GAME. WORKS FINE ON WINDOWS 7"

    March 29, 2013  |   By KimmelBB

    Version: Checkers 1.3

    Pros

    * It complies with the American Checkers rules (pawns can only move forward, never backwards)
    * There are 10 different levels of difficulty to set
    * The Interface is OK (whole screen)
    * It does not do any movements automatically (it forces you to jump and take all the time, but it doesn't do it automatically for you)
    * It has interesting options during a game, like "offer draw", "resign" and "undo move"

    Cons

    * The interface is a Win XP-based one, so on Win 7 the game has difficulties at completely closing. One has to open the Task Manager to end the process manually and even so, Windows has problems closing it.
    * It forces you to jump and take, when there's the chance, I'd rather be able to "pass" a jump and lose the piece, as opposed to having to jump and take when I don't wish to, strategically.
    * Once crowned, the kings can only move ONE SPACE on any diagonal direction, which is opposite to the American Checkers rules, where a king can move diagonally and jump freely, whenever there is at least one space between pieces, or no pieces at all, and it can also move diagonally in different directions, while jumping and taking.

    Summary

    For a FREE game, it is great, I highly recommend it, it is fun and very challenging!

    "Good for teaching kids"

    July 30, 2012  |   By arnold88

    Version: Checkers 1.3

    Pros

    Levels 1 and 2 are good steps for my grandson.

    Cons

    Does not allow for variations from the rules which are programmed; i.e. forcing you to jump an opponent in lieu of applying a strategic maneuver.

    "Tried installing, loaded installer for another program"

    February 20, 2012  |   By Joe2496

    Version: Checkers 1.3

    Pros

    Can't tell

    Cons

    For starters, this program wouldn't even download. Second, when I launched the installer, Earth Alerts repair tool booted up...I have never seen anything like this before so I am fairly confused.

    "Game is not set up right"

    March 25, 2011  |   By momtimesfive

    Version: Checkers 1.3

    Pros

    There are none!

    Cons

    This game is lousy!

    Summary

    I downloaded this game for my 5 year old son. This game will only let you move the way IT wants you to. It will also only crown you after IT crowns itself. This game cheats -not exactly the type of thing I want my 5 year old learning is all right.
