A Checkered Past

Did you know:

“English draughts, known simply as draughts in the United Kingdom and some other countries, and also called American checkers, straight checkers, or simply checkers, is a form of the draughts board game played on an 8×8 board with 12 pieces on each side that may only initially move and capture diagonally forwards.”

Interesting. Thanks Wikipedia for another invaluable nugget of useless information!
