Who Invented Checkers

Report as

The original person who invented checkers is unkown! Here is the history: A board game like checkers (called "Draughts" in Great Britain) was discovered in the ruins of the ancient city of Ur in modern day Iraq. This board game dates to about 3000 BC. Checkers as we know today has been around since 1400 BC. In Egypt, a similar game is called Alquerque.

The game of checkers goes back to ancient times. It was played, on a slightly different board in 3000 BC. It was reworked a bit in 1100 by a Frenchman and has been popular ever since.
