Draughts was a national past time-played in coffee houses and general stores.

Three problems by the legendary Geo. H. Slocum. Slocum's problems always taught
beautiful lessons. One of the best of all time. His problems were nearly always shot problems. But not
always. White is moving up the board in all three.

Sketch of John Drummond
|In the 1850's, John Drummond issued his compilations and
analysis on many openings-mostly GAYP. (Go-As-You-Please) He also gave many of the GAYP Openings
their names. A true Checkers/Draughts legend.
No player dominated the 19th Century like James Wyllie, affectionately
known as "The Herd Laddie." World Champion from the 1850's till 1992, he had little competition. As long
as the game is played he will live forever. Still today we go over "Wyllie's" games. Perhaps the most
famous player -ever.
|Traces of "Draughts" were found on Egyptian Monuments as early as
2000 BC. However, Professor
Petrie, eminent Egyptologist, says that: "While excavating "they" got down to the Temple of Senefern,
the 1st King of the 4th Dynasty-3766 BC-they found beautiful architecture, bronze chisels, stone axes,
and a Draughts Board." Homer describes the suitors of Penelope, as
"whiling away their time at
Draughts."-The Peoples Draughts Book.|

Ben Boland, photo left, is one of the games greatest legends. His many books on problems and
endings-from actual play- are some of the games most important. Our game would me be much poorer
without his contributions. Photo, probably 1930's.

One of the most famous books of all time, written by-Willie Ryan
The British dominated the game
from 1800-1922, before the American's took over. Since 1922, Mr. Oldbury is their finest
player, winning the British tile in the 1950's and holding it till his death in 1994.
IN 1991-92 he became World Champion. I personally rank among the 10 greatest players ever.
