Keeping this in consideration, can you go back and forth in Checkers?
A piece can move forwards and sideways but neverbackwards towards its home space. Only a King may doso. A checker MAY NOT combine a move and jumps on thesame turn. It may either move one space, or makeone or more jumps.
Additionally, what are the official rules of checkers? English draughts
- Pieces. The pieces are flat and round. They are referred to as"men".
- Starting position. Each player starts with 12 pieces on thethree rows closest to their own side.
- How to move. all the single pieces (the starting pieces) canonly move diagonally forward.
Also know, what happens in a stalemate in Checkers?
There is no such term, because there is no such thing asa stalemate in checkers. I believe "stalemate" ismerely the specific case where a player must move but cannot make alegal move, resulting in a draw. The very rule you cited statesthat, in checkers, if one player cannot make a legal move,the other player wins.
