The checkerboard's red squares spell RED GOES FIRST JUMPS ARE NOT MANDATORY. Play the game as a normal checkers game, though the jumps need not be completed to their fullest. Each time a piece is jumped, take the letter of the spot you jump. Reading down letters for the red side first, then the white, you can read TWELVE ANGRY MEN DIRECTOR, who is SIDNEY LUMET.
