Checkers game

Do you love spending time challenging your friends to checkers? Then I bet you would gladly try some video games capable of training you to improve your playing techniques. What if I told you that there are tons of them, free, just waiting to be tried?

If you don’t believe us, take a look at the list of titles that I am about to offer you: from the classic checkers game to download on your computer to online multiplayer titles there is something for everyone. And don’t think he’s forgotten about smartphone video games!

In short, whether you are a lover of checkers with years of experience on your shoulders or a “newbie” who has fun from time to time with this historic pastime, you will find what is right for you. Let’s get started right away!

If you are looking for a checkers game to install on your PC to challenge the CPU or a second opponent locally, I suggest you take a look at CheckerBoard which is completely free and includes several analysis engines to work out the moves to be made.

Download it on your computer by connecting to its official website and clicking on the CB_setup.exe link located at the top of the left sidebar, then open the exe file you just downloaded and install the game by clicking first on Yes and then on Next four times consecutive, Install and Finish .

To translate CheckerBoard into Italian, select Italian from the Options> Language menu . Next, go to Analysis engines> Choose engine and set dama.dll as the primary engine to set the game with the Italian checkers engine.

Do you want to play against a real opponent (locally) instead of against the CPU? Nothing could be easier: go to the Options menu > Game mode and select the item 2 players from the latter. In addition, if you want, you can also change the appearance of the pieces by selecting one of the items available in the Options> Pieces menu .

If you are using a Mac, I recommend that you try Fantastic Checkers Free . It is a checkers game that allows you to challenge the CPU or another opponent locally. It includes 3 difficulty levels and is characterized by very accurate graphics. You can download it for free from the Mac App Store by first clicking on View in the Mac App Store and then on Free / Install the app .

If you prefer to try your hand at an online checkers game to challenge other users from all over the world, I can only direct you to Checkers by Treagles , one of the most popular multiplayer checkers titles of the moment. It can be used via Facebook without installing any program on the PC.

Then connect to the App Center of the social network and click on the Play now button to start the game. On the page that opens, look for a free table and click on the Click button to play to join the game. If you do not see free tables, click on the Refresh button (located at the top right) to update the list until you see the coveted green button appear .

You can also invite your Facebook friends into the video game by clicking on the appropriate button located at the top left, while to participate in the tournaments you have to buy or earn Treagles coins during the game (virtual coins like those found in many other games “Social”).

Furthermore, I would like to point out that you can also play the checkers of Treagles from smartphones and tablets. Just download the free game app on Android and iOS and connect it to your Facebook account.

Staying in the mobile field, here are some free checkers games that I recommend you download on your smartphone (or tablet) to have fun on the go.
