### Problems with checkers

I was playing several games of checkers this morning. Sometimes when I wanted to move a piece, I couldn't highlight the piece even though it was a legal move.
This has happened a lot lately. Is it just the computer? Being evil and cheating because it can't stand you winning? Or is it just a bug?

Has this happened to anyone else?

Javascript is normally very buggy.

Boy let me tell you what:
I bet you didn't know it, but I'm a fiddle player too.
And if you'd care to take a dare, I'll make a bet with you.

Exactly. Plus, the Computer doesn't like you winning.

### Re: Problems with checkers

I had better look into this !

Is it a random thing? Or can you detect a pattern ... for example, you are always on the edge of the board, or something.

If you can find a pattern I may be able to figure what is going wrong.

The only thing I've found so far is that it only seems to happen when you can defeat another piece. HA! See, the computer can't take losing.

But it's nice to know that people (or ferrets) from lots of different places are joined here.

### Re: Problems with checkers

OK, I have another checkers game, which hopefully will let you win

It is here

I have just a small bug left where it can declare victory too early.

You will surely let me know if it has other problems.

No problems that I can see. It's working fine, especially when I kicked butt.
