Great app but pls can u make the maximum capture rule optional ( the any capture rule option) & have the option of rotating the board by 90 degrees this having the longest diagonal on d right instead of the left. This will change the international draughts version into the west African or Nigerian version of the game which is very very popular!!

Great app to practise combinations for international draights 10x 10 maximum capature is a must in this game version that is why it is such a difficult game this version doesn't install on android 9 and above otherwise 10 stars great job by the develloper, one drawback doesn't work offline,,which causes the app to hang constantly with the message lidraughts is unreachable another dtawback is replay the opening studies the replay button doesn't work needs a lot of work to reach good level

Almost 60% of our users run the app on Android 9 and above, so that is certainly not a general problem. An offline mode is also a built-in feature of the app, so you shouldn't have problems there either. If you want help troubleshooting what goes wrong on your device, please contact us by e-mail.

Great app. It is hard to add a game played on the app to your study. You can't directly share a game to your study. Would be nice if developers would work on this much needed option which now takes about 4 to 5 steps between app and website to get it done in order to share sland use study with others.
