There is no one and only way to play Checkers. Everyone has various habits and usually prefers to play exactly the same way as in the past, that is why decide on your favourite rules:
🇺🇸 American Checkers (English Draughts) – capturing is mandatory but the pieces cannot capture backwards. The Queen doesn't have long moves but only one step. The queen has ability to move and capture backwards.
🌍 International Checkers - capturing is mandatory and all the pieces can capture backwards. Also the queen moves differently, it has long moves – it means that the queen can move any distance diagonally if the square is not blocked.
🇪🇸 Spanish Checkers (Damas) – these rules are based on the international but the piece cannot capture backwards;
🇹🇷 or Turkish Checkers (Dama) – dark as well as light squares of the board are used. Pieces start on the second and third rows, do not move diagonally but forward and sideways. The way that queens move are similar to the chess queen.
Have you found the best rules for you? If not, choose your own rules. It's really easy, just enter Settings (upper right corner) and choose the options that you prefer.
I wish you had a good game!
