Checkers (Draughts)

Draughts (British English) or checkers (American English) is a group of strategy board games for two players which involve diagonal moves of uniform game pieces and mandatory captures by jumping over opponent pieces. Draughts developed from alquerque, a game originating in the Middle East. The name derives from the verb to draw or to move.

Getting Started: How to Play

  • To Play
  • White to play first.
  • Peóns move diagonally forward.
  • If there is an opponent diagonally in front of your peón you can capture with a jump if the following diagonal square is free.
  • If your peón gets to the far side of the board it becomes a king (can move backwards).
  • Game is won when one side captures all the opponent's peóns or the other side is unable to move.

Next Steps: Planned future enhancements (icebox items):

  • Double jumps
  • Modify to create Chess
