Checkers Champions of Northern Africa

Checkers game players from Northern Africa.

History states that the roots of the checkers/draughts game originated in Northern Africa hundreds of years ago. Since that time, variations of this game have been played throughout the continent by children and adults alike. Often, these checkers variants would be played in the center square amongst a handful of opponents eager for the challenge.

The modern day checkers game arena has not solely been confined to tournaments and championships in either North America or Europe, but has spread across the world to encompass South America, northern Africa, and Asia. There is a good possibility that the checkers game is more widely played by a larger populace in the USA, Canada, and Europe than in other locations worldwide, but Western Africa has seen a fair number of qualified and skilled checkers players join the International arena.

Research clearly indicates that checkers players of northern African ancestry have maintained a formidable presence in the game through the development of many Masters and Grandmasters in French-speaking Africa.
