I don’t think I’ve ever played someone that ate the checkers but I’m sure it’s happened. I do remember playing one of my grandmothers once when I was young though. Apparently by actual checkers rules if you have the opportunity to jump someone and don’t, then that person can remove the piece that did not make its required jump. Well, I didn’t make that jump because it was a trap I tell yuh. And after my failure to comply, she politely picked up my checker and blew on it. Apparently blowing on the checker is some tradition I was also not familiar with.

I definately recommend doing this too. It’s quite fun, it’s like an extra slap in the face to the person after losing their checker piece.

    Poor Wally, things never seem to go right when he’s involved.

    Yeah, but you can’t bring Wally down, he’ll think of something.

    I work in an adult store and we have a game of chocolate checkers. You eat the pieces after they get jumped (and then you take off an article of clothing).
