Checkers is a game released for the Atari 2600. It is one of two adaptations of the classic board game made for the system.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

It is your basic standard game of checkers, where you and your opponent move your pieces diagonally across the board, jumping over the other player's pieces to capture them and attempting to have your pieces become "kinged".
