Checkers, also known as Draughts is a classic and popular board game. Much Simpler to learn than Chess but it can also become quite advanced when you start planning your moves ahead. This version can be played against the computer or a friend. The goal is to remove all of your opponents pieces by “jumping over” them. If you reach the other side your piece will be “kinged”, allowing it to move in any direction. Board games such as Checkers are a great way to build your logical thinking skills, activating parts of your brain which may not be used daily otherwise. Focusing your mind on a game like Checkers can also relieve stress and the dopamine response from winning improve your mood and increase productivity. Have you played a game today?
