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?

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

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!

I loved it as a kid, we played it a lot. I never learned chess.

I did when I was a kid, although I don't recall being very good at it.

Once in awhile, I suppose. Can't remember the last time I played.

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

I don't like the rule that you must jump the other player.

Like Martha I've not played for some time.
I do like the picture you've used in your post here

All the best Jan

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

Yes, I do but I like Chinese Checkers better.

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.
