Problems are sometimes touted as the artistic side of checkers. In this contest you will be seeing double the art: first, clear images formed by the checkers as they are initially placed on the board, and second, good, original, unpublished, artistic, winning solutions. If their counterintuitive moves are too hard for you to find, please play their animations, and cast your vote for the one you find most artistic overall. If you divulge your vote via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, we’ll compare your skills on the free International Ladder of voters that accompanies the results of every contest. If you want to contribute your own original, unpublished, checker problem for use in a future contest, please send it to the same address.
After you've reviewed the problems, cast your ballot in the box below.
