Chessckers is an exciting strategy game requiring the penultimate wit and mental dexterity. As you may have guessed it is a mixture between the games of chess and checkers using the pieces and rules of both.

The rules of chessckers are simple as long as you understand both checkers and chess. Using a regulation chess/checker board, set up as shown above.Movement is very simple: all chess pieces move exactly as they would if one was playing chess.(i.e. Bishop diagonally, Rook up, down, left, or right, etc.) Also like in regulation, checker pieces move diagonally and, only if kinged, backwards diagonally. (To be kinged, a checker piece must move to the opposite side of the board.) You may not move your king into check. This article is licensed under the GNU Free Documentation License.

I enjoy your blog. I happened upon it by accident awhile back. Thank you for posting.

Although I never heard of Chessckers, it is a very interesting article.
no seriously......chessckers? thats pretty funny. this blog has lots of cool stuffs. thanx for postin it. =)
By the rules of chess and of checkers, the near right square to each player should be 'white' or light colored.

The game is a very interesting idea. I'll have to find somebody to play it with, apart from my six-year-old daughter who's still learning.
