WHAT IS DRAUGHTS GAME

International Draughts as played in Nigeria, Ghana and Indeed in some African Countries, is a table Board Game for two players on a 10 x 10 Board, using 40 Round or Square pieces called "Seed" (20 Seeds for each player) on a "Draughts Board" with 50 Black and 50 White Squares (The Black and White Squares could also be in other colours).

The game is known as Draughts in United Kingdom and Checkers in the United States of America.


The "Draughts Board" is positioned on the laps of both players that are seated or sometimes the board is put on top of a table. The Central Line or Longest Line (diagonal) has to be at the right hand side of both players.

The seeds (20 seeds (Pieces) for each player) are arranged on the black squares and all moves are made on the Black squares.  Both players will take turn by being the first to make a move with every new game. Lots are drawn to establish the first person to start.

You can learn the games COMPREHENSIVE RULES WITH ILLUSTRATED PAGES by clicking ((Download/Print the Comprehensive Manual Here).

You can also see the ABRIDGED RULES (Download/Print the Abridged Manual Here).

However, here is a summary of the main rules:

1.   Capturing of a piece (seed) is compulsory (both Forward and Backward)

2.   When a player has two (Multiple) places to capture (eat-up) during playing, THE PLAYER AS A RULE IS FREE TO CAPTURE TO ANY PLACE HE SO DESIRE.  The capture of the largest number of pieces (seeds) is NOT OBLIGATORY.

3.    When a Seed (Piece) succeeds in reaching the Backline of its opponent (or the Promotion Line), it is crowned a “King” by placing an already captured seed (piece) on top of the seed that has reached the Backline.  This is to distinguish a King from an ordinary Seed.


4. King moves any number of step(s) forward or backward (diagonally) during playing and when eating (capture) provided that the place it wants to go is a straight line (diagonal) with the previous place it stood in a flying fashion.  Whenever a King (crown), during a capture, meets, either or the same diagonal or on one of the perpendicular diagonal, a seed of the opponent behind which are one or more empty squares, he is obliged to pass over that second piece, if needed turning a corner towards the seed that can be eaten-up, even a third etc, the king will finally stop behind any empty space he so desire of the last seed captured on the same diagonal.
