Overview System Requirements


Modern Checkers is a FREE, easy-to-use, competitive checkers app. Choose between four levels of difficulty. Undo your mistakes and switch sides. Ask the computer for a hint. This is the checkers challenge you've been waiting for! About Modern Checkers Modern Checkers follows the standard U.S. rules for checkers. An important part of these rules is that when a player can make a capture, there is no choice: the jump must be made. If you haven't played Checkers with this rule before, give it a try! The key to beating the computer is to force it to make a move it wouldn't otherwise want to make. Modern Checkers features a very strong artificial intelligence. The game should be easily beatable on very easy, but easy will provide a good challenge for most players.
