Checkers Around the World Invented Checkers Variants

Doubles Checkers Game
(1994)

Doubles checkers box top

This Doubles Checkers game variant was a game designed for two teams of two players each. The Doubles Checkers board was an octagon grid with eight parallelograms per side. The size and shape of the parallelograms adjusted throughout the octagon to allow total coverage of the game area.

The doubles checker board contained sixty four shaded parallelograms. Team mates sat across from each other, with opponents to the left and right. Traditional checkers rules that applied to this game were those for diagonal movement, jumping and crowning the single checker as king. However, the octagonal shape of the doubles checkers board caused the crowning rows to exist to the player’s left and right instead of the opponent’s last row straight ahead.

Each player’s goal was to win by capturing all the opponent’s checker pieces or by blocking the remaining pieces on the doubles checker game board from any further movement.

Though checkers was created so that player’s could establish their own challenges. This Doubles Checkers game variation added a new dimension by incorporating two other players and the unique play on an octagonal game board.
