Gr 8 Up-A book for both beginning and advanced players. Pike points out the benefits of this multigenerational, all-inclusive, interactive game and recommends it to improve concentration and the ability to deal with complex situations. Early pages discuss the history of this ancient game. "Part Two" is devoted to strategy and tactics and offers over 50 easy-to-follow diagrams on plays at the beginning, middle, and closing of the game, and pitfalls such as the "doghole." Advice for setting up a checkers tournament (including a sample scorecard and schedule) and "Rules of Play and Laws for Standard American Checkers" (as well as variations) conclude the volume. The back cover folds out to become a board with numbered spaces so readers can follow along with the diagrams and the spiral binding makes the book easy to consult.-Edith Ching, St. Albans School, Mt. St. Alban, Washington, DC
