Set the turn timer for off, 1,3,5 or 10 minutes. This is the time it takes for each player to take their turn, if you run out of time the game ends and the other player wins!
This game is also known as Draughts. The game ends when one player loses all their checkers, or cannot move on the board. You 'take' your opponent's piece or 'man' by jumping over it and landing on an empty square
You can only move diagonally and forward towards your opponent, unless you have a 'king' You get a King by getting your piece to the other players back row (furthest away from you) and now it can move both forward and backwards.
With this App there is a DEMO which helps show how the game is played.
