Most of the familiar Checker Board games operate through the standard war mechanisms of attack and capture. After a few captures the games can become less competitive and one sided. Instead, Blockade CHECKERS focuses on strategy and maneuvering skills. There are No Captures. To Win a game of Blockade CHECKERS apply strategies that control an opponent's ability to maneuver and position game pieces, cause Blockades, and set Vacating Traps. An offensive strategy must also provide good game piece positioning options or else game pieces will not assemble in their VISITORS area effectively! Consistent, efficient and effective game piece positioning and maneuvering techniques are required throughout a game of Blockade CHECKERS that is being played with or without the presence of an opponent's strategy tactics. Maneuvering game pieces from HOME to VISITORS becomes a planning and problem solving strategy puzzle during games with either 2 or 4 players and also during Solitaire games. Tan moves first. A Brown game piece is moved after every move that is made with a Tan game piece. To Win a game of Solitaire complete the occupying of Tan's VISITORS area. The Solitaire game is Won when Brown's VISITORS area is also occupied during Brown's game ending last move. A Solitaire Win is also a Two Player Draw or Tie! Solitaire games and casual 2 player games will not require the "Make a Vacating Move" command and rules.
