For some reason, finding a decent quality checkers game board is a little bit of a challenge. However, for a family with children, this one is great.
The "board" itself is a rug-type material as described on the item's page. It is durable and large. The checker pieces are also good size and seem sturdy.
This game is easy to roll up and place out of the way in our living room. It also came with a good, sturdy plastic bag inside which you can store the "board" and the pieces of you so choose.
When we want to play, we just unroll it (or take it out of the bag) and get started - it's that easy! If you are nostalgic for those days from your childhood where you played games on the floor with your siblings or parents, then this game might bring back some of those memories.
It is attractive, well-made and easy to store. Checkers itself is somewhat of a simple game, but great fun for kids or kids-at-heart!
