Checkers is a good game to play on a rainy day.  The rules are quite simple so pay attention!  First of all a checkers piece can't move backward unless it has reached the other side of the board and been kinged. A piece can jump over another piece to take it.  Another important thing is that checkers can only move diagonally.   When a piece is kinged it can move in any direction (always diagonal though) except for only one space.
