Make a Checker board with the cards and play Checkers by using only our Multi Playing Cards.

What do you need?

Two or three sets of Multi Playing Cards; depending on how you want to create the Checker Board.

Set up

Make a Checkers board with one color deck. A Chess board is a matrix of 10 x 10. Use the black deck if you have a white table or the white deck if you have a black table. Alternatively, you can also use a black and white deck to make up the board, if you so prefer. Start on the lower left side by placing the first black card. This, incidentally, is the side from which the player who plays white will begin. If you’re using only one deck, leave a space between the black cards to create the white spaces. So, ultimately, you’ll get a setup where cards and table spaces alternate. As said, you can always use a black and white set together. 

Sort the cards of the other deck, cards 1 to 40. These cards will represent the black and white checker pieces. Place your Checker pieces on the three bottom rows, but only on the black fields. In total, you must place 12 pieces. 

After you have placed all the checker pieces, you’re ready to play a round of Checkers!
