i have played a few of these now it seems that checkers get stuck at the top or bottom..if they cant get in the doesnt say that in the there a way to get them unstuck or are they no longer usuable once ya move them there...

30. Enero 2003, 10:44:26
No, the checkers at the top [bottom] are really stuck. Should I mention that in the rules?

Hi there can anybody tell me why I cant move my black piece from A3 to capture either F8 or A7 on game ID 48510 ?

6. Abril 2003, 04:03:23
Checkers only move diagonally which explains why you can't capture A7. To capture a piece, you must jump over it to the space beyond it, which is why you can't capture F8 (it is on the edge of the board).

cya peeps 
Asunto: question
if a person queens a piece, can they on that same move capture a piece by continuing to move or is the move considered over once the piece queens? :)

When you promote, the move is over.

Asunto: Starting from 2nd Rank
Could the 1st rank be left clear, as in Turkish Checkers? It would make the game that much faster!

16. Agosto 2003, 21:40:55
It would also make the game incredibly different - in Turkish Checkers, you can't move out your third rank pieces necessarily, because your opponent can likely double jump. With the first rank not empty, you can safely move that piece out because you can jump your opponent back after a single jump. If you wanted to speed up the game, it would make MUCH more sense to make it 6 ranks high, rather than leaving the first and last empty.

17. Agosto 2003, 06:20:31
Asunto: Re:
Ok, 6 ranks high then; whatever!

23. Agosto 2003, 04:58:29
Yes, this has been a problem with lots of players, it seems: you win a game, and the game continues anyways. I had one game that took a few minutes to realize i'd won, but did eventually. All we can do is hope Fencer does something about it :-)

If a king has a jump available do they have to take it?

fencer:thank you for invitation, but sorry ,i dont know tank battle,but i very much like turkish chequers.

I have taken to this game, and would like to play some of the better players at it(Ie over 1400 bkr). Please send me invites :o)

i'm currently in a game where I have about 3 white kings, plus able to get 1 or 2 more. My opponent has 1 black king, but he "controls" the main diagnal line. (Moving from 1 corner to the other corner) each move - leaving me unable to do anything!

What are the rules on draws - which i would hope this would not be.

8. Abril 2004, 07:13:29
thats one of the problems with the game. As long as you have the main diagnal the game will always be a draw, nothing you can do about it. The game could use some modification to it.

8. Abril 2004, 15:34:34 
... and now that I know that, i will always try to get my piece to the main diagnal early so if I can't win - I'll at least make it a draw.

(Maybe some sort of "After XX moves", the game ends and the person with the most pieces wins rule is needed?)

27. Mayo 2004, 22:59:19 
Is there a rule somewhere like in chess, if the same move is made by both players 3 times or more in a row, the game can automaticly be called a draw?

10. Julio 2004, 10:31:56
Thats not a bad idea BBW. Might be more interesting playing on a 10x10 board or possibly only having two parachute pieces.

10. Julio 2004, 11:06:41
I will change the model for all variants with "long" king/queen moves soon. You will be forced to make as many jumps as possible.

11. Julio 2004, 05:15:31
Thats great to hear, will make a big difference in all the games.

11. Agosto 2004, 05:55:27
Yeah it's a hard job but someones got to do it. You really must be bored.

21. Agosto 2004, 11:13:15
Playing my first anti-checkers game tonight. I almost got confused and played an anti-checkersish move on a regular checkers game! That would have been embarassing.

Has anyone actually embarassed themselves like this?

21. Agosto 2004, 12:04:56

Asunto: question
Modificado por david upshaw (31. Agosto 2004, 21:32:50)
I am new to Gothic Checkers. At the end of a game where I have 2 kings and my opponent has one, how can I pin him? It seems like a draw because he can always move side to side and escape capture.

1. Septiembre 2004, 09:53:18
I think it's a draw.

Asunto: r u ready ?
anybody interested in a game ?

4. Septiembre 2004, 10:33:18
Games can be won like this, but when both are good players, its unlikely, So id agree with Fencer

6. Septiembre 2004, 11:28:57
Asunto: Re: question
I may be wrong but i think it is almost impossible to force a win.

7. Septiembre 2004, 05:10:31
Asunto: Re: question
It is possible to win in this situation. You need to have one of your kings against one of the sides, and if you can force your opponent towards one of the corners it's possible to position one of your kings so they would have to jump it and land in front of your other king for you to jump for the win. But a draw is easier since this could take a long time to do.

18. Septiembre 2004, 04:34:24
Its especially better to draw when the single king is towards the centre of the board

2. Octubre 2004, 13:05:01
Asunto: to encourage more players
Do you think a 6 wide x 8 high small gothic checkers would work? So as to have a shorter game, also would mean that once down to 1 king v's 2 king, there is more chance of a win than have to draw.

10. Octubre 2004, 23:03:24
Hello big bad wolf
sorry for the late reply.
there is no such rule about draw in turkish checkers

15. Octubre 2004, 19:38:49
