General dating rules for men
In almost all variants, the player without pieces remaining, or who cannot move due to being blocked, loses the game.Uncrowned pieces (men) move one step diagonally forward, and capture an opponent's piece by moving two consecutive steps in the same line, jumping over the piece on the first step.In international draughts, kings (also called flying kings) move any distance along unblocked diagonals, and may capture an opposing man any distance away by jumping to any of the unoccupied squares immediately beyond it.Since jumped pieces remain on the board until the turn is complete, it is possible to reach a position in a multi-jump move where the flying king is blocked from capturing further by a piece already jumped.If a sequence with a capturing wolf and a sequence with a capturing man have the same value, the wolf must capture.The main difference with the other games is that the captures can be made diagonally, but also straight forward and sideways. The rules come from international draughts, but board size and number of pieces come from English draughts.
