OBJECT OF THE GAME
To sweep the board of your opponent's men (checkers) by jumping them, or to trap them so that your opponent is unable to make a move.
* Think before you move! Try to stay one jump ahead of your opponent.
* Sacrifice a man if his loss puts you in a position to jump 2 of your opponent's men.
* Keep your men in tight formation. The more they are strung out, the more vulnerable they are.
* Keep your opponent from getting crowned. The first player to be crowned has a decided advantage.
* Use kings wisely. Remember: Kings can move both forward AND BACKWARD.
