A great game almost ruined by jerks

This is one of the only Internet play capable checkers games since when does discontinued online checkers after windows seven. The game works well but would be even more fun with a rating system that kept track of wins and losses. However, the big problem with this app is that there's no way to block players who abandoned the game constantly. Two in particular, wvcritter and napoleanbambo are ruining the game by starting games and abandoning them immediately. There should be a way to either block these players or the game should automatically cause anyone who abandons the game to lose. Also, one occasional glitch crops up when an opponent asked for a draw and it is declined and then the game freezes up. I love checkers and I'm glad that someone is taking the time to make an app capable of Internet play, I just hope that the jerks mentioned above don't destroy the game by making it impossible to find serious opponents.


This is a great compact checker board for when your in a car, an airplane, or simply don't have a checker board at home. If you do have one, forget about it! With an actual checker board, you have to get out the box and the pieces, and you have to clean up afterwards! But with this you just whip out your iPod and zing!!! A game of checkers prepared right before your eyes! Plus, 2 people can play at the same time! I rate this five stars as an excellent app on any and every iPod!!!


the game is fun. don't have any strategies prior to playing as I just enjoy it. it's nice to decide the computers strength as its no fun getting annihilated; I don't like losing but I do enjoy being challenged.
I {do not} appreciate the notice of "40 consecutive move" appearing, the way it does. I do like being able to call a game a draw but I've started new games because has shown up when I've gone to make a move & the move has been right where the 'yes' option is; also, I've counted the "consecutive" moves & it hasn't been '40' when the draw notice comes up....
