Checkers is a board game and your goal is to remove all your opponent's pieces from the board or prevent them from making a move. Pieces can move diagonally, always staying on the dark squares. Pieces can "slide" to an adjacent open square or "jump" over an opponent's pieces, removing them from the board. Normal pieces move toward the opposite side of the board. If a piece reaches the last row on the opposite side of the board it is promoted into a "King" piece. Promoted pieces may move towards either side of the board.
