CheckerBoard

CheckerBoard | Abstract Board Games | Scoop.it

CheckerBoard is the most fully featured free windows checkers program.

- Play against different checkers engines - Cake and KingsRow are among the best English checkers programs of the world; both are capable of running with the 8-piece endgame database if you have it. Weaker engines are also available for beginners.
- Enter and replay games. You can have the engine running in the background, giving you evaluations and suggested lines as you move through the game.
- Full game analysis: The engine will run through the entire game and give what it thinks to be the best line in every position, with evaluations.
- Full PDN support (a database with hundreds of games by Marion F Tinsley, arguably the world's best player ever, is supplied with CheckerBoard).

Yannick Kilberger's insight:

A strong checkers game.

Windames 3D

Windames 3D | Abstract Board Games | Scoop.it

International Checkers interface. Also features lessons (at least in French, I have not tried the other languages available). Numerous playing strength options. Even though the name implies 3D, it also features a 2D board which I believe is the most useful.
