The Final Reward
As more and more school districts around
the world become aware of the intrinsic teaching
qualities that are an integral part of the
checkers/draughts game, the future of this
great mind sport is assured. With time, schools
and recreational facilities will undoubtedly
adopt or develop their own checkers/draughts
games programs wherein students can be introduced
to the fascination of the game and to the
hidden magic of the challenges beneath each
move on the checkerboard.
These young minds will quickly realize that
there is so much more to learning and understanding
the depth beneath a simple game of checkers,
but hopefully, the innate challenge to beat
the other opponent and secure a deserved
win will become the motivating factor that
develops a unique love of pursuing every
chance to play a great game of checkers.
