We’ve combined the two oldest, most iconic 2-player board games in human history - and it’s no coincidence that they are both beloved strategy games! There’s nothing the world loves more than a good old-fashioned battle of the brains.
What's in the Box?
Checkers is a classic 2-player strategy game where each opponent chooses a color for their half of the pieces on the checkerboard. The objective of the game is to capture all of your opponent’s pieces, or block your opponent from moving by luring them into a trap. Each new move requires careful consideration of both offense and defense - sure to keep your brain buzzing!
The playing pieces are moved according to a roll of the dice, and a player wins by removing all of their pieces from the board before the opponent. Although luck may be a determining factor of the outcome, there is much more brimming beneath the surface. Like all the best strategy games, patience and planning all contribute the final outcome as well. With each roll of the dice, players must choose from numerous options for moving their pieces and anticipate possible counter-moves by the opponent, playing offense and defense simultaneously.
The wooden board game for Checkers and Backgammon folds into half to hold all playing pieces internally when not in use - perfect to take on trips!
