The game of checkers is one place where stealing is condoned, not condemned. But the intended victims do not always concede. The characters in this crafty quartet either commit the crime or are caught in the act. There a dearth of Kings and a plethora of game-like positions, with different styles and different outcomes. Kindly compare their animated solutions and then cast your carefully considered vote for the composition that impresses you most.
