Checkers Around the World Invented Checkers Variants<

Fourhanded Checkers Game
(1974)

Fourhanded Checkers board

This vintage Fourhanded Checkers game variant consisted of an 11 x 11 square checkerboard minus one corner square at each corner. The squares were alternating light and dark as in the original version of the game, but players used nine instead of twelve checkers, which allowed for two to four players, either in teams or individually, in the game play. At each corner of the fourhanded checkers board, four Pots were situated for first king, first double jump, first triple jump and winner. The checker pieces were colored in the traditional Red and Black, but also in Yellow and Blue. Many of the fourhanded movement rules were similar to classic checkers except that a player must jump to capture, if possible; however, the player could also choose among the available jumps. This adaptation is the same as in many of the existing checkers game variants around the world today. This was an interesting four player variant where the four Pots would add to the challenge if they were filled with something of value or titles such as ‘King of the World’. Fourhanded checkers game was noted to be a quick and unpredictable game with the four players coming from all sides.
