NAME

       flcheckers - the fltk checkers game

SYNOPSIS

       Checkers  is  a  FLTK-based version of the game of checkers.  The game is played on an 8x8
       board with each player starting with 12 pieces or "checkers"  on  opposite  sides  of  the
       board. The computer plays the white checkers in this version of the game.

       The  object  of  the  game is to remove all of your opponents pieces.  Players move one of
       their pieces diagonally forward on each move, either a single space  or  by  "jumping"  an
       adjacent  piece. Your opponents pieces are removed by jumping them - you can make multiple
       jumps in a single turn.

       If a piece reaches the other side of the board, it is converted to a "king" which can move
       both forwards and backwards.
