The checkers game plays with poor strategy. It's basically ...

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?


Signature line:

I wish a had a more interesting signature line.

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.
