I just happened to be looking for this, and find the full version the day its posted. What great coincidental luck. Now i'm one step closer to compiling what games i remember from the cd i had called "Play it Again Sam" that included this game. Thank You

Wow where did the time fly? I completely forgot I posted here back in 2016, about this game. Ha. Well, without further adieu, here is a link of the full version of Argo Checkers

I'm releasing it for two reasons:

1) The game is close to 30 years old
2) The author has not sold the game since the mid 1990s.

Because of these two reasons, it seems extremely selfish to not release it. If the original author does start selling the original game by some extremely rare chance, I will remove the download and link where it can be purchased

Enjoy, you will need 7zip to unencrypt and of course Dos Box to play

I can upload a video of the full version just to show that I'm not lying, but as far as I can tell it looks like me and Jason are the only two people in the universe with the full version of this game.

Hi there, I have the full version of this game. It's a long story but basically I found the author's phone number (Jason Blachowiak) and got him to send it to me a number of years ago. Unfortunately, he forbade me from distributing it to anyone, but considering that the game is 22 years old and hasn't been sold in almost the same amount of time I almost feel like sharing it. I'm just torn because he was so nice to send it to me and I don't want to disrespect his wishes, yet at the same time I feel that this game should be shared with the public so that it is not lost forever and since it's ancient in terms of software age. I just don't know what to do, any suggestions?

One of the best games on here. The graphics a very nice on the eyes and the gameplay is very nostalgic. 10/10, who doesn't like checkers?
