Here are some links to checkers sites on the web. I like the links at the top of the list best, but all of these
sites are worth a visit. Some of the program sites have a lot of checkers content too, for links to these go to
the other programs

- The Checker Maven - Bob Newell's site on checkers, probably the best the web currently has on offer!
- Jim Loy's
checkers pages. One of the first good checkers sites on the net, and in my opinion still one of the best. Lots of interesting articles on
checkers. The page about computer programs is very outdated though.
- The American checkers
federation (ACF) is the governing body of checkers in the US. Their new website is a must-see for
every checkers player in the US. Includes a forum to discuss all kinds of checkers topics.
- Checkerslounge.com is a new site with a lot of checkers related information.
- The northwest draughts federation (NWDF)
is an association of draughts clubs in northwestern Ireland.
- Chinook is the
world man machine champion. Read about Chinook, download it's games or play against a dumbed-down version of
- Al Lyman's site. The former ACF homepage
has a lot of interesting material, but you may have to look hard to find it, as it is a bit disorganized.
Al also sells a teaching program called "straight checkers".
- The English draughts association (EDA) organizes
draughts in England.
- The German draughts association (GDA) is responsible
for draughts in Germany.
