Discussion about development of draughts in the time of computer and Internet.
Not much feedback (yet?), but I am continuing with this idea regardless. Below you see the concept, a regular piece and a king (dividing the 32 identifying chips of Certabo into 24 regular pieces and 10 kings, to avoid having to stack the regular pieces). Courtesy my brother-in-law for the 3D printed checkers pieces.
I got my new set of identifying chips from Certabo. Together with custom-made checker pieces (courtesy Gerard Harbers) , Checkers for Android is ready to play!
Yes, Checkers for Android could easily identify the chip of the piece that promotes as a king and play from there. The human players probably want to mark that piece also somehow for their own recognition (and stacking would work, since the "bottom" chip is identified by the board). This would have been my solution if you had to pay for each Certabo identifying chip individually. But since they ship in sets of 34, I thought this would be the most fun solution.
