Frog Fun is a great app for iOS and Android devices based on the old board game, King’s Court. It's a cross between chess and checkers. It is simple to learn, like checkers, but requires the skill of chess to master.
Frog Fun is a gaming application in which two teams of 24 frogs each compete on a grid of 64 lily pads. There are 16 lily pads in the center of the game board forming a 4 X 4 grid that is called “Turtle Island”. The island is surrounded by 48 lily pads, creating an 8 X 8 grid of lily pads. The two frog teams compete for domination of Turtle Island. Whichever team jumps all of the other team’s frogs on the island first wins the game. You do not need to take all your opponents pieces on the board to win.
You can jump your opponent’s frogs in a horizontal or vertical direction (not diagonal) to remove them from the board OR jump your own frogs in the same manner to gain strategic advantage. Click the “Jump” button to jump frogs.
The game starts with each player’s team clicking on a frog and then an adjacent lily pad in order to occupy Turtle Island. There is no jumping on the first two moves between each player. Now, play continues and jumping of one or more frogs in a horizontal or vertical direction is allowed.
