Checkers is the classic strategy board game with the goal of capturing all the opponent's pieces. The game is deceptively simple yet full of intricacy as those that take on the Expert level will find.

    This app keeps crashing on me.

    I have checked for updates and this app is generally the only thing running. It seems that anytime I am about to win the app freezes and crashes. Not only that but the computer isn't following the rules it makes me follow. Save yourself the frustration and get the board game instead of this app.

    True Professional Features

    Of the many checkers programs available for the nook, this is the only one that has the three-move starting option used in professional tournaments. The choice of variations is excellent. I'm giving it four stars instead of five because the menu system is not intuitive.

    Highly Recommended.

    This program plays a strong game if given 30 seconds per move or more. At fast speeds it often gives up pieces unnecessarily. When playing White at American Checkers it switches to three move for no apparent reason. At the advanced levels it plays slowly. The large number of options are outstanding. All but the very strongest players should find it challenging.
