9781330017531: Vocabulary of Checkers: A Dictionary of Words, Terms and Phrases Used in the Game Called Checkers, or English Draughts (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Vocabulary of Checkers: A Dictionary of Words, Terms and Phrases Used in the Game Called Checkers, or English Draughts

The words, terms, and phrases explained in these pages were obtained chiefly from the 227 separate works on the game of checkers that have been printed in English in the period of a little more than a century and a half, extending from 1756 to the present time. Each magazine, regardless of the number of volumes issued, is here counted as one work. The sources of information are thus more extensive than the mere mention of 227 works would indicate.

Another storehouse, not included in any way in this count, is the great mass of printed matter on the game found in the checker columns of newspapers. An important additional supply department is the checker chatter of the players themselves.

No term of interest that the writer could find, or get any one to find for him, has been omitted. The guiding idea in accepting or rejecting a term was this: Does it refer to something a student of the pastime anywhere many have occasion to use or look up?
