Hill Billy Checkers
This is a game that one of my fellow campers had purchased while on an
outing. It appears to be available in several areas under different names
and variations. It is quite simple and a quick bit of fun. The board
is about 20 inches long by 11 inches wide and 1/2 inch thick with 12 areas on
it. That makes a flat and easy to transport game for your RV!
INSTRUCTIONS
