About this title

Synopsis:

Want to dominate the Checkerboard and astound your opponent with every move? Then you have to know how to find alternative solutions to problems, break down complex situations, and keep control of your long term strategy. And here's the best way to learn just how to do that. As you go move by move through puzzles and an entire game, you'll absorb all the tricks and techniques that turn an ordinary checkers player into a champion. Start with the basic moves that put you on the winning track. Protect your pieces, get kings and use them well, and thwart your opponent at every point. Fight for control of the center of the board. Set up multiple jumps, and avoid the "doghole." You'll even discover how to play computer checkers-so you can go on the Internet and pit yourself against "Chinook," the world computer checkers champion.

About the Author:

Robert Pike is an American Checker Federation MA Champion. Graduating from Brown University, he served as a Navy Jet Carrier Pilot & then a sales/marketing executive in Health Care Companies with three medical device patents. Years ago he was introducing his grandchildren to this "Granddaddy of Boardgames" and their interest started him off on an extensive, but unsuccessful, search for a primer on this not-so-simple mind game. So he wrote "Winning Checkers For Kids" and, for younger audiences, "Checker Power." He also produced an award winning video, "Learning to Play Better Checkers" to incorporate visualization into the learning process. Pike's colorful checker materials and captivating classroom presentations have beenenthusiastically received by students and educators, who find that the "magic of checkers" provides a stimulating, multigenerational challenge that develops critical thinking, strategizing, problem solving, perseverance and attention span, while also building important social skills. His Checker Puzzles have been featured in "Highlights For Children" magazine. He lives in San Diego.
