Checkers Boards That Inspire and Amuse

The kind of checkers boards we often use has an effect on our continued interest in the game. If we want to be good at it, we need to keep playing checkers. And for us to sustain a vigorous interest in the game we need to have the right checkers boards in our possession.

All checkers boards are almost the same. They have the same square patterns, number of squares, and number of pieces. Well, some checkers variants have more number of squares and pieces, but the common checkers we know of have only 64 squares and 24 pieces to play with. And yet, in a sense, there needs to be a particularly "unique" set that we should personally own. In function and basic contents this set is not different from other sets. But there's something definitely different in its "feel" and vibes.

Hence, we need to know what boards are available out there for checkers. We should make sure that what we buy is the right board for us�though it may not be the right one for other players. There are basic boards made of ordinary wood. There are special sets of hard wood or light weight pine wood. There are those of metal, glass, or natural stones. There are even boards of shells, or fossil, coral, and onyx stones.

Some checkers boards are oversized to reflect the enormous excitement inherent in the game, especially if we apply certain innovations to it. Colossal boards are fitted with equally gigantic but light-weight pieces specially carved and shaped to resemble animals or soldiers. Playing them not only exerts our minds to some extent but our bodies as well. Just imagine the bending and lifting and pushing around.

And if there are larger than life boards and pieces, there are also pocket-size ones that can fit pant or jacket pockets so we may take them anywhere and play them any time we want. The pieces may be magnetized or fitted with pins underneath to fit a small hole in the middle of each square on the board. We may even play them while aboard a fast moving vehicle.

The idea in all these various board types is that we get a set that is really to our liking. We feel like a champion with every touch of the board we own and its pieces. And it's also recommended that we buy several checkers boards to make certain that checkers is available to us anywhere, anytime of the day.
