Checkers Will Never Be the Same Again!

Tired of the same old checker board with the same old moves? It's time to take your checkers game to the next level with Not Your Grandma's Checkers where you can build an entirely new board and have a unique game experience each time you play. 

Playing is as simple as:

  1. Players take turns building a checker board from cards they have in their hand, as well as ones they draw throughout the game.
  2. Each player introduces pawns onto the board as it is built. Traditional checkers rules apply, with each player trying to capture opposing pawn (or king) pieces by jumping over them.
  3. The first player to capture 5 opposing pieces wins. Special cards can also be drawn, and as they are played, they will introduce new board configurations, immediate kingings, or extra turns.

    How Not Your Grandma’s Checkers Was Born

    After creating our first game in the Not Your Grandma’s series (Go Fish) a few weeks earlier, we set off to create another fun twist on a classic – Checkers. My 10-year-old son had long-loved playing checkers. Being a competitive kid, he told me that if his sister could help create the best Go Fish Game in the history of the world (which became our first game – Not Your Grandma’s Go Fish) he could easily help create the best twist on Checkers  the universe had ever seen. 

    So with nothing more than some card stock paper which we cut into squares with a cheap paper cutter, we set out to design a game of checkers that you could build yourself as you played. For as simple of game as checkers is, creating a “build your own” checkers board was no small task. That boy must have played 50 games before things started to get ironed out. Plus, he got some great suggestions and direction from his mother and friends from Utah. Before long, we could not put the game down.  In the end, he believes his Not Your Grandma’s Checkers game is even better than his sister’s creation of Not Your Grandma’s Go Fish. We’ll let you decide.
