Checkers Around the World Invented Checkers Variants

Space Checkers Game
(1971)

Space Checkers adapted the traditional checkers game into the 3rd dimension so that instead of players using twelve checkers on a two dimensional 8 x 8 square checkerboard, each side used eight men on a 4 x 4 x 4 cube.

The rules of this 1971 Space Checkers game adaptation were straight forward and fairly simple:

Black would set up near the south lower edge of the playing surface and could only move north and upwards; whereas Red would set up near the north upper edge of the game surface and could only move south and downwards. Captures and crowning were 3D space analogs to the 2D case. Instead of four large levels, the space checkers board was split into four towers of 2 x 2 portions and this allowed the player to more readily reach the pieces at the interiors of each level without actually interfering with the visualization of the complete cube. This space checkers version certainly presented a unique spin on an ancient game and gave the players a different challenge in visualization and strategy.
