If you’re looking for something a little out of the ordinary or a costume that does more than just look good, consider a Checkers costume.  Not only are these costumes unique, they’re excellent icebreakers, helping bring groups of people together.  (There’s nothing more boring than a Halloween party where everyone breaks off into little groups and sits in the corners.)  Get out there and mingle!

These checker board costumes include a large 5×5 “board” and a set of 10 checker pieces (5 red and 5 black).  The pieces are removable and can be used to – surprise – actually play checkers.  The male checkers costumes are available in multiple sizes designed to fit both men and boys.

About Checkers

Checkers is the American name for and English board game called draughts.  Draughts is, in turn, a variation of an ancient strategy game that has been played for thousands of years.  Boards and pieces have been found in archeological digs all around the world dating back as far as 3,000 BC in the ancient city of Ur.

The game has been played by kings, queens (including Hatasu – more commonly known as Queen Hatshepsut) and philosophers but in the 19th century the game became popular with more common folk.  Checkers is often referred to as the strategy game for those who cannot (or prefer not) to play chess.

Checkers is a common pastime in the American south and is often one of the first competitive games young children learn to play.
