- traditional chessboard (8x8 fields)
- set of white and black pieces (12 pieces per color)
Arrange the checkers on the board.
We'll tell you how to play checkers.They play two opponents, one playing the white pieces, the other - black.The right of the first move (ie, who played white, because they make the first move) is determined by lot.But it is - a small digression, let us return to the alignment.Checkers of the same color are put on the board in three ranks.At the same set of pieces each color is placed only on the black board cells.As a result, the board must obtain two original "garland", between which two free cell lines.
Learn principle moves in checkers.
here - all in order.
stroke checkers.All checkers can move only diagonally, only one free cell in moving forward (back checker can not walk).White starts the game, and the player can go to any of the top row of a sword.
If a checker reaches the opposite end of the boa
Attack in checkers (fight).Simple checker can hack enemy's sword, "jumping" through it, provided that the figure of the enemy in the same diagonal have a free cell.That is, take a look at the board.Such an example: white checker is on the G1 box, the black checkers are on the F2 and H2 fields;White's move.H2 Checker said white checker can not hack, because of it, according to the planned from the white checkers diagonally no free cells.But the E3 field freely.Then chop the white checker black, standing in the F2 cell (felled block removed from the board);she also holds a white sword E3 field.If in our example E3 field it would be occupied by another sword of any color, white checker from G1 could not hack in any direction.If after one felled Checkers is the ability to hack the next bomb, it must be done - and so long as there is an opportunity to cut.All this will be considered as one way.Chopping block can be in any direction, as with the progress, and with the advance back.Let's say our example: white checker standing on G1, the black checkers are on the F2 and D2.White checker starts move: the F3 saber cuts, proving itself at E3 field, and then she had an opportunity to cut down his sword on the D2, which she does, left, in the end, in the C1 field.
Kings cut on the same principle, but according to their "advanced capabilities": if for cut down his sword diagonally battle is not one empty cell, and more, the king can choose any of these free cells.
The rules of combat in checkers have one unique feature: the obligation to cut the enemy, if possible.If it turns out that you can hack in different directions, then the choice of this trend remains the player.For example - move the white piece to our E1, before it put two black checkers on D2 and F2, for which the remaining free cells.It turns out that at the discretion of the player's white, he can hack any of these black pieces, but some should be cut down.players often use this rule, deliberately substituting one checker pass, resulting in a situation to be able to cut down the increasing number of opponent's checkers or to gain other benefits for themselves.
Remember the position in the game.
principle, they can distinguish two:
cut down all the opponent's checkers.Game over, losing a player who has lost all the checkers.
checkers on the board were two colors, but one player can not make a move.The game is over, the player loses, the course is not possible.
Learn strategies and techniques.
Information about this a lot, there are books on drafts, the Internet many specialized resources fully dedicated to the game of checkers.
And, of course, lots of practices play checkers.Theory is good to understand, but "practice", as they say, "always kills theorist."The board should be able to see the possible combinations are advantageous for themselves, as well as time to detect "traps" that puts an opponent.And to see it - you have to play.By the way, for training there are many computer programs for playing checkers.So - good luck and success!
