I remember as a Kid, hanging around the store fronts playing games like "Checkers". It passed time for boredom as it was therapy for us all. Extra-large checkers and versatile playing surface make this game ideal for children and seniors alike. Playing surface is of a natural fiber composition. Comes with 12 black and 12 red oversized 3" checker pieces for playing checkers, 30 traditional sized checker pieces in 2 colors, plus 2 dice to play backgammon, and a 28" square "board" with checker board on one side and backgammon on the other. Includes everything needed to play checkers and backgammon. Sold in store for $14.95 but including $5.00 in the on-line price for shipping within the contiguous U.S.
