Checkers (AKA Draughts) is one of the world's most popular board games. The earliest records of this game date back to the Egyptians 3500 years ago. In more recent times this has been most favoured by the USA and Scotland, the two countries to provide the most World champions in this game. In England and Scotland this classic board game is known as English Draughts. This implementation has been designed to provide a strong engine, even if only running on a mobile phone. Unlike many commercial Checkers programs, it correctly plays the common 2K v K, essential for quality checkers/draughts play.

The draw by threefold repetition mechanic is glitchy. It sometimes ends the game in a draw even when you perform actions for the first time, and switching it off just makes games drag out. That one bug can easily butcher your playing experience, and it happens often. If it weren't for that, I would give this game a 5 star rating, especially since it's a rare case where the ads don't mess up the game. Sadly, this was not to be. Try another checkers app.

Thank you for your comment, however we believe the app follows Checkers rules properly. Draw occurs when position of all pieces is repeated 3 times but this may be spread out over the game. Please contact support@aifactory.co.uk if you do not believe this is the case. Thank you for your help.

Checkers is fun again! I had problems though with 2 player mode. My opponent was sitting right next to me but my moves wouldn't show up on his phone. (Update) Thanks to the fast reply from the developer, we fixed the problem. I still really like the game, but after playing many rounds, I think the developer could refine the difficulty levels a bit. There seems to be a huge jump in difficulty from level 2 to level 3. I've won 72% of games in level 2, but only 24% in level 3.

Thank you for your feedback. Levels have been calibrated against each other but different human play styles may find some cpu styles easier than others. Don't forget you can use Hint (? on Menu) to suggest moves to help you learn as you move up levels.

It's a good game if you have someone to play with the AI sucks. On lower levels it's stupid and walks into jumps constantly. On the higher levels it acts like a giant baby going to the top left and bottom right corners and going back and forth until you give them a jump. Horribly coded. I tried the chess one too same issue.

Thank you for the input. Lower levels are designed to allow people of all skill levels, including beginners, to play. Higher levels will use legal moves to try to win even if they are not moves you would like your opponent to use. You could try changing "Allow Drawn Games" in Menu, Options to see if that changes cpu response to your strategies.
