Checkers are also called Draughts

Checkers and Draughts are actually two names to the same game. The difference is that in the United Kingdom people call the game draughts and in the United States people call the game checkers. Checkers, or Draughts as it is known in Great Britain, has ancient roots. It is thought that the earliest form of checkers was a game discovered in an archaeological dig at Ur in Iraq. Carbon dating it back to around 3000 B.C. However, it used a slightly different board, a different number of pieces and no one is quite certain of the exact rules. English Draughts, known simply as Draughts in the United Kingdom and some other countries, and also called American checkers, straight checkers, or simply checkers, is a form of the draughts board game played on an 8X8 board with 12 pieces on each side that may only initially move and capture diagonally forwards. Only when a piece is kinged may it move backwards. As in all Draughts variants, English Draughts is played by two people, on opposite sides of a playing board, alternating moves. One player has black pieces, and the other has white or red pieces. Most commonly, the board alternates between red and black. The opponent's pieces are captured by jumping over them.
