    Checkers is easier to play and win.Also easier to explain to other people how to play chess is harder to explain and play I know how to play it some what but I still don't which way to move the king when I am in check.

    Chess is just 'cooler'. Checkers is for kids or old men sitting on a park bench.

    I've been playing chess since elementary school. I was fifth in the state of PA for a while. Chess is a fantastic game, and requires quite a bit of mental work. That being said, is this not the greatest idea of all time:

    Chess is a game that needs to be thought through at least three steps ahead and you must have a good strategy.

    Checkers is my favorite where as chest is too difficult for my understanding.

    I picked chess, but since the question is which game is "better", sometimes it's better to play checkers, depending on the mood or what everybody else wants to play.

    there's so much more skill, and think involved in chess. when you win its more impressive then beating someone in checkers.

    Plus, saying "Checkmate" is a thousand times more satisfying than saying "King me".

    It's a far greater game and the only game I can think of which is worth my time.

    I'm not a very good Chess player, but I love the mental workout it gives me. Checkers is great too, when you're not up for thinking in terms of a full-blown strategic military campaign.
