showing how to lose by playing so poorly with its strategy.

It promises:

"Checkers - Practice here, then obliterate your friends Play » "

I do like:

1) the looks of ithe board and pieces

2) how to click the pieces to move

3) the speed at which it returns a move

4) apparently it plays by the correct rules of checkers/draughts

Can you amend it or substitute it with a different

computer checkers game to improve at least

novices' skills, please?

I don't know if this javacsript, at this address:

Thinks.com

Scroll down to the checkers option.

10 levels

Play against the computer.

You or the computer can start.

Levels 9 and 10 may keep a player waiting for several

seconds, depending on the complexity of its move

at the time.

Thanks!

That one is in java. Perhaps we need to research checkers engines in general.
