    I have a question: what is the difference between 'chess players' and 'checkers players'.

    I ma not a mothertongue, so I would appreciate your help in clarifying this for me :)

    Thank you

    Hi rosebud79,

    Have you tried looking up the words "chess" and "checkers" in the dictionary? If you put them into the Dictionary Look-up at the top of this page you'll find out what they are.

    They're two different games, although they're both played on the same board.

    Thank you Thomas - having said the image helped a lot:)
    Infact, I was pretty sure they were NOT the same thing,what made it confusing is that the dictionary on this site translates 'chess' and 'checkers' into Italian in the same way !!!Anyway now I know the difference, thanks for you help.
