Let us give you a run down - you'll be a poolside pro in no time!
How To Play: CHECKERS
1. Each player takes 12 pieces of the same colour (pink or orange).
2. Each player arranges their game pieces closest to them on the board. Place a piece on every other dark square, creating staggered rows.
3. Each player takes their turn by moving a piece. Pieces are always moved diagonally. You can move in the following ways:
Forward Diagonally to the next dark square.
Jumping diagonally over your opponents piece, moving to the next dark square. When you jump over a piece you collect it.
4. You win the game when your opponent either has no more pieces left or cannot move. If neither player can move it is a tie.
If you're feeling more confident in your playing skills, you can use the same pieces you used for checkers to play a game of Chess. Simply use chalk or a whiteboard marker to signify the different pieces and away you go!
The Summer Games Towel puts the 'fun' in functional. Fold it up and bring it anywhere with you - it's perfect for good times on the go!
