This print-and-play file is an alquerque board and pieces. The board and pieces fit onto one sheet of A4 card. A second sheet contains the assembly instructions and rules of play.

Alquerque was one of the ancestors of modern draughts, or checkers. Two sides of twelve pieces each face one another across a board of 25 points, only the central point starting empty. Pieces move in any direction along a marked line, and capture by jumping over one another.
