I recently learned this easy trick to win a checkers game.

Step 1: Move to a wall

This would be an interesting strategy. However, checkers has a "mandatory jump" rule, i.e. if you you can jump an opponent's checker, then you must. That being said, it would be impossible to get from the setup shown in the last screenshot with an empty horizontal row (with the lone white checker in the edge square on the right) to the next screenshot with all empty squares filled with white checkers. As soon as any white checker moved to the empty row adjacent to a black king-row checker, a jump would have to occur, thus vacating a king-row square.

Good strategy

Thanks
