Playing games is a great activity for children, and the games offered by Amerigames are outstanding, beginning with this Quick Checkers set. A simple game that children can easily learn, Checkers still offers plenty of mental stimulation, provides the development of logical skills, and encourages thinking that can lead to additional future activities. There are different levels of complexity available along with traditional checkers—angle checkers, chip switch, and play quicks—so there are many games in this one 36-block board, with a 64-square checkers mat and a 24-piece checker set. The instructions include easy references and diagrams. Quick Checkers are great for children and adults to play together.

Other products in this line include Chess, Tic-Tac-Toe, Quick-Tac-Toe, Quick Backgammon and Quick Parchisi. These games are important for all children to learn to play as part of their development and their experience as children. Your child will enjoy this colorful and well- produced sets of Quick Checkers.

 The product line was developed by Joe Miccio, who was a fire fighter and former policeman in Queens. In 1991, Miccio saved a child from the window of a burning apartment building; now he has turned his attention to helping all children learn to play games that are satisfying and that continue a great tradition.
