African Checkers Championship

The International checkers arena was once dominated by the Russians and Dutch masters in national and World competitions; however, since the arrival of Baba Sy on the scene, African checkers players have been offering skilled challenges in numerous championship tournaments as evidenced by the Masters and Grandmasters from West Africa, in particular.

The games roster now repeatedly depicts Cameroun, Sénégal, Mali, and Côte d’Ivoire as the African checkers championship countries that are represented by experienced GMI and MI checkers players. The African checkers masters have placed well in the Tournoi de Douai (Douai Open), Cannes International Open, European Confederation Cup, the Delft Checkers Festival, Open International Tournament at Brunssum, the Hiltex Zeeland Tournament at Goes, Netherlands Championship, and the International Bijlmer Checkers Tournament in Amsterdam.

These exuberant African checkerists have also been contenders in the World Championship Match in Yakutsk, Siberia. Other checkers championship tournament arenas that appeal to the skills and competitive spirit are national competitions such as the Championnat de France (Championship of France). Numerous checkers titles have been won in the Blitz de Wattrelos, France, the Coupe de France, Normandy Open, and the Grand Prix de Montrouge.

The International game of checkers has grown tremendously with the advent of new talent on the European circuit and the African checkers champion players have certainly added a new flair to this mind sport. They possess the same dedication and commitment to checkers as many seasoned checkers champions and they now reign side by side. These Masters and Grandmasters are respected at the checkerboard and many lifelong friendships have developed over the years through tournament play after tournament play.

MI Fidele Nimbi, Congo, and GMI Flaubert Ndonzi, Cameroun, now reside and play in France; however, they also participate in the Championnat d’Afrique (African Checkers Championship), which has recently been hosted by Dakar, Sénégal, and Yaounde, Cameroun.

The checkers legacy left behind upon the death of Baba Sy, has not stagnated but blossomed tenfold as a result of the tactical skills and great game play displayed by the current African checkers players on the International scene. Furthermore, it won’t stop here because many of the African countries are witnessing a surge of interest in the mind sport at the local village level, at the regional level, and also at the national level. From here, hopefully new talent will emerge and gain a stronghold, just as their predecessors have managed to accomplish.

Sierra Leone teens checkers

Sierra Leone teens enjoy a quiet, private game of checkers

From the quiet game between two friends to the village square where the checkers assemblage gathers, the atmosphere is usually one of contemplation, daring, and analysis. The checker pieces move slowly across the checkerboard to welcome a winner or to sympathize with the gamer’s sad defeat. This simple, or rather, not so simple mind sport has gained popularity across the wastelands, through the jungles, and over the seas to touch the interest of a multitude of new checker faces. Moreover, this great ancient game has grown new roots, and touched deep in the hearts and spirits of young and old alike, whether novice or checkers champion, and the colored disks will continue to move across the checkerboard for generations to come.
