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.
