How to play Checkers:
- On the computer, use the mouse to play.
- On the mobile, touch the screen to play.
The goal of Checkers, or “Draughts”, is to remove all your opponent’s pieces from the board. Use your mouse to move your pieces around the board. Your pieces can only move forward one tile diagonally (they always stay on the brown tiles).
To capture an opponent’s piece and remove it from the board, you need to “jump” over their piece with one of yours. Jumping is mandatory, which means you have to jump with one of your pieces if you are able to. Try to force your opponent to make a jump and put him in a bad position!
If one of your pieces gets to the opposite side of the board (your opponent’s back row), it will turn into a King. Kings can move and jump diagonally in any direction (remember, your regular pieces can only move forward). They can even combine jumps forward and backward on the same turn!
You win by removing all of your opponent’s pieces from the board, or if your opponent can’t make a move.
