Description

The best app for the game of international draughts (10x10 checkers)

Enjoy the game of international draughts (or 10x10 checkers) at a yet unprecedented level for tablets and smartphones. Maximus, the 2011 Dutch Open and Olympic computer draughts champion, is available for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch. In 2012, Maximus played a match against former draughts World Champion Alexander Schwarzman, resulting in a narrow defeat (five draws and one loss). More recently, Maximus played in the (unofficial) world championship computer draughts 2019 and took third place. Maximus was running on a desktop computer, which is of course more powerful than a mobile device. Nevertheless, you will find Maximus to be a fierce opponent on your tablet or smartphone!

You don’t have to be an expert player to enjoy Maximus, however, as there are many levels of difficulty. Starting with a level to explore the rules of the game, at which Maximus always plays a random move. Then there are ten training levels, from beginner to expert, that you can try before you start giving Maximus more time to think. Improve your play by analyzing your games with Maximus and learning from your mistakes. You can also use the program as a draughts travel set or as a draughts notation booklet, or even in your draughts competition if you are one player short!
