Sterling Publishing Company Incorporated, Mar 1, 2000 - Games
Dominate the checkerboard and astound your opponents with every move! With this gift set that includes a great guide to the game and a fantastic fold-up magnetic checkers board (in the official green and white colors of the American Checker Federation) that doubles as a handy traveling case, there's no doubt you'll become a master. Play Winning Checkers, an official manual of American Mensa, shows how to find alternative solutions to problems, break down complex situations, keep control of long-term strategy, and stay on the winning track. As you go move-by-move through entire games, see how to protect your pieces, get kings and use them well, and block your challenger. Fight for control of the center of the board, set up multiple jumps, and avoid the "dog hole." Even learn to play computer checkers--then go on the internet and pit yourself against "Chinook," the world computer checkers champion. Big bonus: the back cover is a fold-out game board! 10 1/8 x 8 3/4 x 1 1/16.
