Editorial Reviews

Christian Library Journal
Good for a game room, children's center, after school program or library, 24 Games You Can Play on a Checker Board succeeds in its goal of keeping kids away from electronic media.

— Anita Horning

School Library Journal

Gr 3-6- This compact book has great color graphics throughout. It is brimming with creative design and varied typefaces, and is written in a lively, kid-friendly manner. Each of the game's directions includes setting up (clear diagrams), "Your Move" (in steps), "The Goal," and "And the winner is!" Besides a traditional checkers game, kids can play Turkish, French, and Japanese games, and others such as "The Coyote and the Chickens," "Achi," "Pyramid Checkers," "Diagonal Checkers," "Seega," "Fox and Geese," "Wildebeest," and more. Directions are succinct and easy to follow. For hours of endless fun, alone or with a friend, suggest that readers get a checkerboard and keep this book handy. It is sure to pique the interest of children, friends, and families.-Augusta R. Malvagno, Queens Borough Public Library, NY

Read an Excerpt

On some of these games you can only play in certain squares on the board. For more complicated game setups, you may want to lightly trace the playing area onto the board using a pencil or a dry-erase marker that can be wiped clean after you finish your game.
