Quick Checkers: The Best Online Checkers Game for iOS and Android

To dare is to do, and that is exactly what GamoVation did when they created Quick Checkers—a free online checkers game available for both iOS and Android users.

Checkers, otherwise known as draughts, is one of the easiest and most popular abstract strategy games in the world.

First played around 3,000 B.C.E in the ancient city of Ur according to archaeologists, the game was initially played on actual tabletops.

However, with the internet opening up a whole new world of endless possibilities, this traditional and inspiring game can now be played anywhere at any time thanks to Quick Checkers.

The brainchild of GamoVation, a leading video game developer based in Zwolle, the Netherlands, Quick Checkers will keep you entertained for hours on end, nearly as much as it will challenge you.


Different variations

Played by millions of people from all over the world, several variations of this historical game have emerged over the years. Some of the most popular variations available on Quick Checkers include: American Checkers, alternatively known as English Draughts, International Checkers, Brazilian Checkers, Turkish Dama, Spanish Draughts and Russian Checkers.

Although the primary concept is still the same across all variations of checkers, the rules may change slightly depending of the variation.

For instance, all the variations found in Quick Checkers are played on an 8×8 checkerboard with 64 squares, with the exception of International Checkers which is played on a 10×10 checkerboard with 100 squares.

Kinged pieces are allowed to move any distance, both forward and backward, capturing pieces either forward or backward, all thanks to the “Flying Kings” rule. The concept of Flying Kings is applicable to all variations of checkers, with the exception of International Checkers.

Another rule worth noting is that Men capture by jumping forward over an adjacent piece belonging to the opponent, and this is applicable to all variations of checkers, with the exception of International Checkers, Brazilian Checkers, and Russian Checkers where capturing can be done either forward or backward.

As for Turkish Dama, capturing is done either forward or sideways, since movement is done either forward or sideways, unlike the rest of the variations where movement is done in a diagonal manner.
