Checkers Game Sets of
Yesteryear Checkers

For many generations a standard checkers set was easily recognizable by the 8 x 8 checkerboard consisting of 64 light and dark squares. The checker pieces were distinguished by round wooden disks in contrasting colors of either Black and White, Black and Red or Black and Yellow. The packaging was simple and the rules were clearly laid out in every box or booklet.

The pictures above show the different checkers packaging of yesteryear checkers games.

With time, the design of the classic checkers game changed to entice a new market into its fold. Themes of yesteryear checkers became an important factor in the marketing of the product, so manufacturers began to adapt different board compositions, variations in rules and unique checker pieces to the traditional format.

Yesteryear checkers was still considered a solid family game and of course, there were certainly higher levels of strategic play between masters in tournaments, but now children were encouraged to learn the elemental basics of this traditional game within their own environment and at their own level.

Rules were simplified but an aura of challenge and strategy still existed so that the games of yesteryear were not only fun but also stimulating. Versions for the younger set were relatively easy and didn't require a lot of time to complete, but greater complexity was built into game sets for older children so they could begin to develop analytical thinking, strategy and experience.

A simple checkers game is still that ~ a simple checkers game; however, the depth and complexity of this classic board game is always readily available should two seasoned players decide to challenge one another for hours at a time.

Perhaps the multitude of new ‘theme’ checkers will be the forerunners of many masters and game enthusiasts yet to come.
