JR Ranger Collectible Checkers Set
Checkers have been played at the Fort Vancouver Historic Site for nearly 200 years! This set is designed for Junior Rangers and all of their friends.
Checkers, or Draughts, are two different names for the same board game. One is more commonly used in England, while the other is most common in America. Curiously, in this case, it is the former colonies of England which uses the older name for this seemingly simple game. By the mid-nineteenth century, tournament-level checkers was played around the world, with the first world championship awarded in 1847. However, during the Regency, draughts was still mostly an amusing pastime which was enjoyed by many people, across all classes.
