This week on Family Game Night we had a checkers tournament with our new cats vs. dogs checkers from Peaceable Kingdom. It was so much fun and dad came out the champion. The cats on dogs on the pieces are so darn cute. We also decided to make some really easy Easter Fudge with only four ingredients and no cooking except the microwave! So yummy.
Cats Vs. Dogs checkers is a traditional checkers game but the pieces feature adorable pictures of dogs and cats all over them. So you play with traditional checkers rules. The pieces are magnetic so you can easily make king pieces that stay together. It’s a fun version of a classic game.
1 Checkers Game Board
12 Cat Checkers Pieces
12 Dog Checkers Pieces
Who Would Enjoy This:
This game is designed for 2 players and ages 6 and up. My daughter has been playing checkers for a long time way before 6 so I think it could be suitable for younger depending on your child. Anyone who enjoys the game of checkers would have fun with this game. If you are cat or dog lovers it’s a great fun version of the game.
Is It Fun:
We had a great time playing it. Since we were using it for family game night and it’s a two player game we set up a bracket and played a tournament where the winners of each match up played each other then that winner played the next to find the champion.
Use traditional checkers rules to play. Set up the game board with the pieces on the black squares. Take turns moving your pieces in a diagonal position. If a player moves their piece in front of you and there is a space open behind their piece you can jump it and remove their piece from the board. Continue playing until one player does not have any pieces left. If you move your piece from your side of the board to the other and move into the last row you receive a king piece which you indicate by adding a piece that has been removed to the top of the king piece. The pieces are magnetic so they will stick together and easily move around the board.
I have no concerns with this one. It’s a fun game full of strategy and problem solving educational value.
