Russian Checkers is just like International Checkers
, but with the following
The board is 8 by 8 instead of 10 by 10 squares. Each player starts the
game with 12 pieces placed on the darker squares closest to him or her.
When a checker lands on the back row after a jump and becomes a King,
if there is a jump available to it as a King, it must continue jumping
as a King in the same turn. If a checker reaches the back row on a regular
move (not a jump) and becomes a King, it may not make any jumps in that
If more than one of your pieces has a jump available at the start of a
turn, you do not have to jump with the piece that has the most jumps. Instead,
you can choose which piece will take its jumps.
Once you start jumping with a piece, it must finish all of its jumps.
