  • Players alternate moves, with black having the first move.
  • Checkers move horizontally, vertically, or diagonally.
  • A checker moves exactly as many spaces as there are checkers (both friendly and enemy) on the line in which it is moving.
  • A checker may jump over friendly checkers, but not over an enemy checker.
  • A checker may land on a square occupied by an enemy checker, resulting in the latter's capture and removal from the game.
  • The object of the game is to bring all of one's checkers together into a contiguous body.

    Draw
