This app is great, it is just like normal checkers but better! It always makes me mad when someone "accidentally" cheats. But that's where this game comes in handy, if it's not your turn you can't press on your checkers. If you press in your checker and them press a spot 3 or 4 spaces ahead, it will not let you. You don't have to set up another game when you're done with this it takes you to a brand new one right after you're finished. You can also pick which color check you want to be (black or red) and type in your name (imojis included!🙀) so have fun with this app. I'm picky about my apps and I give this one a thumbs up👍

Great app!

I was looking for a tough app that is suitable for my iPad. Found it. When you turn it to high level, you will give yourself a very smart opponent. I believe that the first 100 games provided 100 straight losses on high. My wife did all that she could not to laugh! Hell, you got to laugh at yourself, yes? As I continued I was getting closer to 4/2 and 3/1 which was my short term goal. As I played more the laughing turned to stone as I was determined to beat or at least, tie this app. I did start to tie about a month ago and I was elated. This went on for awhile and then I lucked out and won!!!!!! Only took 522 games! I don't win often but I think I'm learning a few things because when I go back an play previous apps, they seem much easier. This is the best app I've seen, by far. Smart little games is another great one but not in this app's class as of yet. But I must say I'm only on #3 setting. The problem with SLG is that it's slow. I'm thankful that I was able to find this app. Fun Fun Fun!

Game of simplicity

Checkers, the name in itself reminds everyone of its brilliance. Set up for two players, it carries its duty flawlessly. Creating a scene for the two players to imagine and play out. Each player starts with a certain amount of circles, the circles in itself defy the laws of physics and gravity. The amount of work in the circles is astonishing, I say this because no one can make a perfect circle. As Pi is known as a number that never ends. The board also carries its duty flawlessly. As you can use Pythagorean’s theorem to calculate how to move your balls to certain places. Making this game great for mathematicians. The animation with the balls moving shows great symbolism in its artwork. It shows how we can move through life as a flowing ball.
