Review:
One simple change transforms classic checkers to a far more engrossing game. Instead of disks, the playing pieces are cubes with sides numbered from 1 to 6. All cubes start with number 1 facing up. After each non-jumping move, a player may turn a different cube to the next higher number, thus increasing its power and preventing it from being jumped by a lower-numbered cube. A cube that becomes a 6 by turning or reaching the opposite side of the board becomes a king. Parents enjoyed playing as much as kids.
