Russian Checkers

Modifying a board game

Russian checkers

STEP 1: PICK A BOARD GAME TO MODIFY

I will be modifying the board game checkers.

STEP 2: THINK OF NEW WAYS TO PLAY ON THE BOARD

For this game I added dices and points to the game to be more interesting and exciting.

STEP 3: PICK A NEW GOAL FOR THE GAME

To get more points and king mates than the other opponent.

 STEP 4: CREATE A NEW CORE MECHANIC

Players will get a chance to roll their dice and the one with the higher number goes first.

STEP 5: WRITE RULES

If your dice has a higher number then you go first, and so for each turn. But when you have a chance to eat your opponent and you chose not or didn’t notice it, then your opponent takes away that piece. Once king, you can fly from the space your on to the other side.

STEP 6: PLAYTEST YOUR GAME

I played this game against my mother who taught me about the russian version of checkers  and with my new rules and adaptation to the game, she still managed to beat me twice. My friends on the other hand weren’t as good and also we place bets to make the game more exciting.

  1. Your steps are very clear Meir. I am not so great in playing checkers but would still like to try Russian Checkers. Nice post!

  2. Your explanation of the game is clear. I love to play Chinese Checker. I think this will also be a fun game…good post….

  3. The difference between them is that Russian checkers you are allowed to take away your opponents piece away if he chooses not to kill you and moves somewhere else, and once you become king you are allowed to fly from one side of the board to the other. However, I just came up with mocking it by adding dice and points to make the game more interesting and exciting.
