King Me!

…is said triumphantly during an intense game of Checkers…one of my favorite board games as a child. A two player game, my grandfather and I were often found sitting across from each other, leaning over the checkered board. Planning our next moves. Jumps. Double jumps. His pile of checkers usually accumulated faster than mine. Ferocious competitors until one king remained.

I seem to remember the game pieces as black and red, but this “newer” 1980’s version – which I played with my children – went with a new look.
