got to say im either VERY BAD at checkers or they jacked up the AI big time over the last game.

the last game i got was their tic tac toe and and made it up to world series very easy..

on just on the school stage (stage 1 of 5) and getting my butt handed to me almost ever match,...

One thing that sort of bugs me is if you are in a jumping spot the game forces you to jump the ai checker

Worth 5 bucks...how early im into the game i would say ya its one of the funner games i can see playing over and over

QUICK QUESTION

When can single checkers move backwards.. i know kings can move forward and backwards but i never knew single checkers can jump forward and backwards i though only forwards (may be a glitch?__)

Being forced to jump is a tournament rule. Get used to it. Only kings can move or jump backwards, so I don't know what's going on there unless it's different in the international rules.

I assume the difference in difficulty is due to the fact that you can avoid losing any game of Tic-Tac-Toe you ever play if you know what you're doing.

Ash: Professor Oak, how's your Bulbasaur?
Prof. Oak: Oh, it only hurts when I sit.
...
Prof. Oak: It's only Chansey if Krabby won't let go. Bye, now.
Ash: I don't think I'm going to call him anymore.

playing normal game match... if you jump forward you can jump backward over another checker.... never played that way when used to play checkers...must not been playing right back then :)

ALSO hate how the AI can get like 15 draws against other AIs

should of been win or lose no draws in these games .
first set went 12 and 19 stayed in school mode
2nd set went 16 and 13 Stayed in school mode

might go back to it but i think im now offically bored with it for awhile :)

The international rules do include some sort of jumping backwards mechanic, so I bet you were playing with those rules. (You can confirm this if the board is 10x10 instead of 8x8. Go to the options menu and change the rules to "English" to play it how you're used to playing Checkers (although, you'll still be forced to jump when possible).
