Gigant 9.0
A free Checkers game for the PC. Features 14 variants 8x8 diagonal Checkers.

RULES

Checkers/Draughts is a traditional board game played in many countries. To play the game, one needs a chess board and pieces traditionally called men. Now, to play the game, we must go over the most important questions [1] What board size should the player use?
Depending on the checkers variant, it may be 8*8 , 10*10 or 12*12 or even 14*14.
[2] What colour is the bottom left square?
The colour depends on the checkers variant. It may be black or light
[3] How many men should the player use?
The number of men depends on the checkers variant and the size of the board. For example, 8*8 > 12 men, 10*10 > 20 men, 12*12 > 30 men. At the beginning, the number of men is equal for both players.
[4] Where should the player locate the men?
Usually playing is on the dark squares though some still play on light squares.
[5] Who should start the game?
The checkers variant determines who starts the game. Sometimes, the players determine that.
[6] Where should the player move the men?
The movement depends on the checkers variant. Usually, the men move diagonally forward in the same colour of the squares. In some variants, the men move orthogonally forward or sideways.
[7] Is the player forced to capture the other men?
Capture is mandatory and one is force
d to capture the opponent’s men

[8] How does the player capture?

Capturing is made by “jumping” –
moving two consecutive steps in the same line, jumping over the piece on the first step. Multiple opposing pieces may be captured in a single turn if done by successive jumps made by a single piece
[9]

How many pieces is the player allowed to capture?
It depends on the checkers variant. Some allow maximum capture of
the opponent’s
pieces. For example, if there is a chance to choose between capturing 10 or 8 men, you must capture 10 men. Other
variants, don’t force you to capture the maximum number of the opponent’s men. You can choose any capture sequence.
If we go back again to our example of 10 and 8 men, any sequence of capture here means you will choose either 10 or 8 men.
[10] In which direction can
the player’s
men move?
The movement depends on the checkers variant. Usually, the men move diagonally forward on the same colour of the squares. In some variants, the men move orthogonally forward or sideways.
[11] In which direction can the player
capture the opponent’s men?
The movement depends on the checkers variant. Usually, men capture diagonally forward on the same colour of the squares. Some variants allow capturing backwards or orthogonal
[12]

How can the player remove the captured men?
Usually in diagonal games, men are removed after the whole capturing move whereas in orthogonal games, men are removed during the capture. There few exceptions of course as in Thai checkers.
[13] Can capture continue in the last rank?
Depending on the checkers variant, there are three possibilities.
[A]
Capture terminates and a man becomes a king.
[B]
Capture continues and a man remains a man [
C]
Capture continues with a man becoming a king
[14] What happens when the man reaches the final rank?
Usually, the man is crowned and it becomes a king. It has more privileges than the ordinary man. For example, it can move and capture forwards, backward and even orthogonally.
[15]

What are the types of Kings?
Kings can be of three types.
[A] Non-flying kings (Short kings).
Here, kings move only one square forward or backward. They capture also one square forward or backward.
[B] Flying Kings
move any number of squares diagonally/orthogonally forwards or backwards. After the completion of the capturing, Kings can land on any field behind the captured piece.
[C]

Short Flying Kings (King Halt
):- Here, Kings move any number of squares diagonally/orthogonally forwards or backwards. After the completion of the capturing, the king must land directly behind the captured piece.
[16] When does the player win?

A player wins if the opponent has no legal move, either because
[a]
all his pieces are captured OR
[b]
he is completely blocked. OR
[c]
he resigns. There are also special winning conditions for some draughts variants.
[17] What about draw conditions?
[a]
If a player offers a draw and if the other side accepts, then the game is a draw.
[b]
If both players are left with only one piece and if that piece is a king, then the game is a draw since the game can go on indefinitely.
[c]
There are special draw conditions for some draughts variants either determined locally or by draughts federations. Wikipedia has also draw conditions for many draughts variants.
