Pawns can make linear moves and all pieces can jump only orthogonally.
(*) It is mandatory to capture as many pieces (as one multi-jump) as possible.
(**) It is mandatory to capture the maximum possible amount of promoted pieces.
(***) It is mandatory to capture with a promoted piece if possible.
Italian Checkers variant is played on 8x8 board with 12 pieces of each player and the A1 square is white, not black (see the picture).
Pawns and kings move and capture like in American Checkers with these important differences:
Pawns cannot capture kings.
It is mandatory to capture as many pieces (as one multi-jump) as possible.
If a position allows 2 or more longest captures, the one made with a king is preferred. If this condition does not produce an unique result, it is compulsory to choose the one which captures the maximum amount of kings.
If the previous still allows different jumps, the one which captures a king first has a preference.
