Conway Checkers (or: Conway's Soldiers) is a single player game on a checkerboard with an interesting twist: the board is infinite.
Infinite objects aren't really compatible with physical space, so I made a thing where you can play it.
The rules are simple:
- You set up the game by placing your pieces below a horizontal line. You can use any number of pieces you like.
- The goal is to move any of your pieces above the line as far as possible.
- The only legal move is to—vertically or horizontally—jump over an adjacent piece to an empty spot. The adjacent piece dies during this process.
I challenge you to beat my highscore: 4.
