Product Details

This classic strategy game of Draughts is great for 2 players and fun for all the family. The object of the game is to capture all of your opponents pieces or block them so they cannot be moved. Pieces are always moved diagonally, one square at a time towards the opponent's side of the board. The entire game is played on the black squares and you do not need the white ones.

To start:

  • It is played on 64 squares. Take 12 counters and place on the black squares of the first three rows of your side. Your opponent does the same.

Capturing

  • You capture your enemy by hopping over their piece. Capturing can also be done on the diagonal. You have to jump from the square directly next to your target and land on the square just beyond it - This must be vacant. The captured piece is then removed from the board. If you are able to make a capturing you move, you must.

Multiple captures

  • It is possible to take more than one piece on a single move, so long as the jumping piece has vacant landing spots in between. The piece has to land and take off in between each take.

Kings

  • If you can get a piece all the way to the other side of the board, that piece becomes a King. Place a previously captured piece on top of the existing one to distinguish it. This one can move backwards, forwards or diagonally.

Contents: 1 x chequered draughts board, 24 counters (12 black and 12 white)

Suitable for age 3 years plus
