For a game that has been around for thousands of years, checkers, also known as draughts, is still one of the most beloved board games in the world.
Although the abstract strategy game was by and large played on actual tabletops, one can today afford the luxury of accessing checkers anywhere at any time, thanks to strides made in technology.
A perfect example is Quick Checkers, an online checkers game that can be downloaded for free at the App Store and Google Play Store.
Conceptualized and designed by GamoVation, a leading video game developer based in Zwolle, the Netherlands, Quick Checkers has drawn a staggering 3 million users ever since its launch a year ago.
