Contest #26 - Buried 2-for-1s

Postby Bill Salot on Sat Jan 23, 2016 9:57 am

Unofficial World Championship Checker Problem Composing Contest #26 - Buried 2-for-1s - January 23 - February 29, 2016 - has been activated.

One of the first things we learn in Checkers is a simple 2-for-1. It takes us a bit longer to recognize the many 2-for-1 types. But even after many years, we are unlikely to visit all their hiding places or all the ways they can arise.

This page likely hides more 2-for-1s and 2-for-1 threats than any one page in history, 24 of them in a total of only 4 settings.

Note the many 2-for-1s in the variations that are not animated. Check them out, and vote for the problem you think is best.

These problems are begging for your attention.
