Louise was Christmas shopping for our two new grandchildren and was looking for games that would also be educational. Leif was 9 years old and had been out to the farm riding the John Deere Gator and John Deere combine. Louise thought Leif and his younger sister would enjoy playing checkers. Well, checkers on a John Deere checker board. I cannot remember the last time I player checkers but I suspect I will be playing checkers again soon. I can however say I have never played John Deere checkers.
