Luxury Draughts & Checkers for Gifts

on

Checkers is one of the most widely played board games, which are played by two players. If you have also noticed an old couple, having a chess like board on the soft grass of the nearby park and moving round, but flat pieces on it, do know that it was checkers. In old times Checkers sets were available only in wood, although the largest variety of Checkers boards are still made of wood, but they come in a very diverse variety of materials. Checkers sets are now available in marble and fiberglass as well. Same is the thing with their pieces. They were previously made of wood only, but now they are made of marble and plastic as well.
To take the fun to a new level and avoid unpleasant disturbance with the game, some people prefer the magnetic Checkers sets UK with pieces which have magnets. In some countries where people cannot or do not want to buy expensive Checkers boards, they prefer the sets made of cardboard instead of a luxury checkers set. These simple, small and brilliant variations make it possible for the Checkers lovers to keep the passion alive.
Checkers is such a game which can be played anywhere if two players are available. You may play it on a sandy beach, in a park, in a cafeteria, at your home or even while travelling. All it takes is a wooden checkers set and 40 black and white pieces. When we consider the use of these boards in different countries, we notice some very interesting variations. For example, in the United States of America, the checkers squares are mostly in red and black colors. The American Checkers Federation has declared that the checkers playing surface should be 16 inches.
As per their recommendations for checkers to be played in the United States, if people buy checkers set online or from a store, the set should have all round pieces, colored red and white, made of a solid material. Although such regulations do not legally apply to the crafters of any checkers set, nor they do prevent a person from buying an unauthenticated set, but those who love the game, want to play by the rules and who are perfectionist about this game, consider these recommendations. However, in the same United States, there are checkers lovers who do not comply with any such recommendations. They believe that the game is freedom of act and people should be allowed to innovate their own ways to play checkers.
An amazing innovation was introduced in the Barnstable County Fair in Barnstable, Massachusetts, where people were found playing with checkers sets of plywood with each square measuring 3 inches. The colour of the checkers squares was beige and black, and there were really big checkers pieces on those boards. Checkers has been and will remain a craze forever. If you don’t believe me, go to a website like Amazon or eBay to see what price people are willing to pay for a handmade wooden set or a set of vintage wooden pieces.
