The History of Checkers Draughts

The game became modern draughts through being transferred to the chessboard around that time. This book is the result of at least 30 years investigations in the Spanish archives

The modern game of chess started around 1475 in Spain when the queen and bishop got a much more powerful move. It was called ""Mad Queen Chess."" These new rules quickly spread throughout western Europe and in Spain. The enhanced move for the chess queen started after the coronation of the powerfull queen of Spain Isabella I. The historical records duly note that Queen Isabella I was crowned with the sword of justice raised in front of her, and the sceptre and throne were given to her. This allusion to the real-world event is so clear within the Scachs d'Amor poem to Isabella's actual coronation that the inspiration of Queen Isabella for the new chess queen and powerfull dama of the draughts game is unquestionable. The Spaniards like the Moors, played a game on the board of lines and called it alquerque. The game became modern draughts through being transferred to the chessboard around that time. This book is the result of at least 30 years investigations in the Spanish archives

For almost two decades Trill's life was on borrowed time. Each day of life as he knew it was one day closer to judgement day. You see, Trill lived life by no one's rules but his own. Whatever Trill wanted, Trill took and he didn't care what had to be done to get it. Lives were touched in ways they would never recover from, all at the hand of Trill. But he forgot one simple rule, life was much like a chess game; there were pawns, knights and rooks spread across the board, all strategically placed to protect the kingdom. But there were also bishops and queens designed to protect their king as well. For Trill he would wish he had remembered this fact as life comes full circle and he is faced with enemies he never even realized existed. Rasheem is on a mission to vindicate the death of his father, who almost 20 years before fell prey to Trill's hunger to win the game. But Rasheem learned early on the meaning of life and how it was much like a game of chess. Sitting back all through his young life and into adulthood would pay off for one man and be a costly lesson for the other. As Rasheem plans his attack on Trill he finds that he wasn't alone in his quest and in the end it is Trill who never had a chance. Once his allies rally around him Trill finds himself in a corner he created and there is no turning back, no do overs, no retries...after almost thirty years of destruction it is finally 'game over' for Trill and his treacherous ways. Checkmate!

As organizations grow in volume and complexity, the demands on leadership change. The same old moves won't cut it any more. In Chess Not Checkers, Mark Miller tells the story of Blake Brown, newly appointed CEO of a company troubled by poor performance and low morale. Nothing Blake learned from his previous roles seems to help him deal with the issues he now faces. The problem, his new mentor points out, is Blake is playing the wrong game. The early days of an organization are like checkers: a quickly played game with mostly interchangeable pieces. Everybody, the leader included, does a little bit of everything; the pace is frenetic. But as the organization expands, you can't just keep jumping from activity to activity. You have to think strategically, plan ahead, and leverage every employee's specific talents—that's chess. Leaders who continue to play checkers when the name of the game is chess lose. On his journey, Blake learns four essential strategies from the game of chess that transform his leadership and his organization. The result: unprecedented performance!

This extraordinary book tells of the creation of the world-class checkers computer program, Chinook. From its beginnings in 1988, Chinook became a worthy opponent to the world champion and by 1992 had defeated all the worlds top human players. In his fascinating account, Jonathan Schaeffer, the originator and leader of the Chinook team, provides an engrossing story of failures and successes. He describes the human story behind Chinook and his own feelings in his continuous effort to improve the programs performance. We follow the development of Chinook from an innocent question asked over lunch, through to the final match against the then world champion, Marion Tinsley. As the story unfolds, readers are introduced to the rules of checkers and the basics of computer game programs, as well as to the key figures in the story. The culmination of this new edition expounds upon checker finally perfected and solved by Chinook ten years after the story was originally told.
