Game rules:
* The game is played on a 8×8 board with alternating dark and light squares.
* Each player starts with 12 pieces on the three rows closest to their own side. The row closest to each player is called the "crownhead" or "kings row". The player with white pieces moves first.
* Men move forward diagonally to an adjacent unoccupied square.
* If a player's piece moves into the kings row on the opposing player's side of the board, that piece to be "crowned", becoming a "king" and gaining the ability to move back or forward and choose on which free square at this diagonal to stop.
* If a man becomes king it can continue a capture, it jumps backwards as a king. The player can choose where to land after the capture.
* Capturing is mandatory and cannot be passed up to make a non-jumping move. When there is more than one way for a player to capture, one may choose which sequence to make. Player must make all the captures in that chosen sequence. A captured piece is left on the board until all captures in a sequence have been made but cannot be jumped again (Turkish capturing rules).
* A player with no valid move remaining loses. This is the case if the player either has no pieces left or if a player's pieces are obstructed from making a legal move by the pieces of the opponent. A game is a draw if neither opponent has the possibility to win the game. The game is considered a draw when the same position repeats itself for the third time, with the same player having the move each time. If one player proposes a draw and his opponent accepts the offer. If a player has three kings in the game against a single enemy king and his 15th move cannot capture enemy king.

With the last update, it is giving 3 moves if both have "dama" "king" even though there is possibility to win! I had a clear winning position the game became draw!, because of the 3 moves limitation. Normally there is a move limit when there is insufficient material or 3 to 1 pieces. Not possible to play with this buggy version

It is not a bug, only fix. It is impossible to win in this situation, only if opponent will choose stupid move. If you can evidence that it is not true, please send appeal with screenshot. If you evidence it I will change rules in the next version.

Great game. If there's one jump and two jump options, I believe you have to make the maximum jump choice. This game you can choose either. It would be great to see an option for take maximum jump.

The rules of this draught is what I learned before. The Hard level is the hardest opponent I ever met. One thing is could you make some tutorials and lessons to be like this hard. I don't know if you will read this but if you did, give me a chance.
