Checker Piece On Its Board

Checker is played on the same board as Chess, consisting of the same 64 dark and light squares in alternation on a square board. The most obvious difference between the two games is the differing nature of the pieces and their position at the start of the game. All of the Checker pieces are placed on black squares and all of their moves are of the same type, diagonally forward, until one of the Checker pieces gets crowned as King, then he has the ability to move and capture differently, forwards or backwards.
A Set of Checkers consists of 24 Checker pieces, 12 pieces are dark and 12 pieces are light.
