Players score by jumping pieces. The "Same" player scores by jumping pieces of the same color (red jumping red or yellow jumping yellow). The "Different" player scores by jumping different colors (red jumping yellow or yellow jumping red).

The first player to jump 13 pieces wins!

But that's not all! A few twists make things more interesting. Download the game and you too can learn the secrets of Cherokee Checkers.

This game has a long and storied history, passed down through our family by my grandfather.

One of my favorite stories that my grandfather told, and the one I want to share with you today, was about his mother, my great grandmother, who was Cherokee. He loved to tell us about his memories of her, such as sitting at her feet, watching her combing out her long black hair.

He also told us about a game she had played as a girl, the original name of which he couldn't remember, but which he had taken to calling Cherokee Checkers.

It was a favorite of hers, one that she taught him how to play and he taught me. The game was originally played using dried corn kernels, half light yellow and half the darker red kernels, on a flat stone with a chalk board drawn on it, complete with little painted squares.

He had hours of fun playing with her as a child, and he taught the game to my father, and to me and my brothers as well.

Now I've decided to share it with all of you and I sincerely hope that you enjoy it as much as my family has!
