Like Chess & Backgammon, Checkers is also one of the oldest two-player board game combined with strategy and a little bit luck. This board game is known as "Draughts" in Europe and "Checkers" in North America. The exact origin of checkers is a great mystery but It was probably played around 3000 B.C and originated in Iraq—previously Mesopotamia. It is thought that the earliest form of checkers was a game discovered in an archeological dig at Ur in Iraq called Alquerque. However, at that time the game used a slightly different board, a different number of pieces and no one is quite certain of the exact rules. Checkers is also one of the most popular board game in most bars & restaurants.
