In Europe and America, Draughts (or Checkers) is almost always played on an 8 x 8 board. However, there is a superior game called Polish / International Draughts that is played on a larger 10 x 10 board.
Particularly popular in France and Africa, and often played at international competition level, 10 x 10 Draughts significantly increases the complexity - and arguably the enjoyment - of the game, especially when played using "Super Jumps".
10 x 10 chequerboards are increasingly difficult to obtain but Masters Traditional Games has sourced this excellent 10 x 10 Draughts set case. Featuring an inlaid folding wooden board / case and nicely crafted wooden Draughts pieces, this is a good size, complete set at at an affordable price.
There are 40 draughts / checkers pieces included. The board measures approximately 40cm square when open during play. When not in use, the board folds to form a storage case for the playing pieces.
