Checkers Around the World Invented Checkers Variants

Fascination Checkers Game
by Remco (1962)

Fascination Checkers instructions

The game board for Fascination Checkers consisted of a 10 x 10 square, with four 4 x 4 areas in the corners delineated in a black and white checkerboard pattern. The remaining cross-shaped area was a neutral zone. In the beginning, the black and white squares were filled with the black and white game pieces. The player with the Black pieces made the first move. A player captured the opponent's pieces by jumping horizontally or vertically over them only. Multiple jumps were possible as in regular Checkers. Each jump captured the jumped piece. When a player was unable to move, the other player kept going until the opponent could move again. The fascination checkers game ended when no further moves were possible by either player. The player with the most pieces left won the checkers game. Fascination Checkers took the basic game principles of Checkers, adapted them to a different game board, and created yet another interesting variant with a similar theme. K. Franklin, Zillions of Games, implemented a new variant of Fascination Checkers game in 2006 using the following game board:

The description of the current game is listed in the following manner:

“Capture the most opponent checkers by jumping over them. These checkers can jump orthogonally over Enemy Pieces Only. Jumping over a piece captures it. Multiple Captures are optional. When no move is possible, play continues to the other player (forced pass). Fascination checkers games generally end when a mutual stalemate is reached. The smaller, all-direction, 9x9 compressed variant is a new adaptation.”
