Listing Detail Tabs

Checkers (known as Draughts in the UK) is perhaps the world's best known board game with its history being traced back more than 3,500 years.
The attraction of the game is that, despite the great simplicity of the rules, highly complex play can result.

In this user-friendly introduction to the game, Checkers grandmaster Richard Pask provides newcomers to the game with a thorough grounding in the essentials of play.


Reader review from amazon.com:

"I have completed a first reading of all the material in this book and I am now involved in studying it more deeply. Already I can say that this is a fantastic book, with everything you need to get started and to reach an advanced level if you are serious about wanting to get good at checkers.
Some sample pages that I previously saw on the web were extremely unrepresentative of the book and they put me off buying it - but then I saw it in a bookstore - and I changed my mind!
What I particularly like about the book is the way that all the major elements of the endgame, midgame and openings are dealt with in a very systematic, methodical and thorough way. Many more key situations are dealt with (and given memorable names) than I have seen in any other book or website.
The explanations and also very clear and the examples well chosen.
Study methods and the general approach to the game are also discussed as well as the technical details. Each chapter also has a useful summary.
For the sake of this review, I looked hard for something to criticise - sorry, I couldn't find anything! Enjoy."
