Question: Do You Like Checkers?

Like chess, I have a very love/hate relationship with checkers. It's much simpler than chess but after a few games I find it dreadfully boring. Except when you say "king me" as that somehow that never gets old. I was never quite good at checkers and I can't really remember the last time I really played a game of it. 

Do you like checkers?

  1. I don't mind it once in a blue moon but, like you, I find its amusement quotient quickly pales.

  2. same here: love and hate. In my opinion is easier that chess but everytime I played when I was a kid, my sister won. Every single time: it's a game that makes me feel so dummie! XD
    Enjoy your weekend with your loved ones!

  6. I haven't played it in so many years. I didn't mind it but it does get boring quickly.

  9. Prefer chess. Checkers is too simple. Once I went to chess I couldn't go back to checkers.

  11. Played as a kid. It really is a game for kids.
    Anyhow as the Olympics in Rio are now on. That
    is my focus point.
    When young I was into sport, never was one to have
    been a "couch Potato" and anyhow parents in those days
    wanted kids out of the house - fresh air and good games.
