A little history about the checkers game and its procuction

It was only released by Zircon and only in limited numbers.
It was first made available in the FALL of 1980 in a mail flyer dated
10-29-80. This was the first production run of new carts released by Zircon
(checkers was never released byFairchild)
This run of games sold out in 30 days.

The Second time it was available was the Final production run of checkers
in MID 1981 again only available for a short time, and again it sold out very quickly,
probably due to small production numbers. At this time Zircon was selling by mail order
so production was limited

Checkers was NOT available for the 1981 Christmas season

Effectively Checkers was available for less then 30 days in 1980
and only a few months at most in 1981 by mail order

This information is documented on my Web site in the TimeLine section that can be viewed
