English draughts[edit]

Are there any rule differences between this game and English draughts? If so, neither page about the two games makes this clear. If not, should they be incorporated into one article? Seb144 (talk) 22:44, 30 August 2008 (UTC)

  • As far as I know, the only main difference is that kings can move multiple spots at once.

  • There are much more differences between these two games. Actually, Russian checkers is more like International_draughts, than English draughts. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 193.32.20.3 (talk) 05:59, 10 January 2011 (UTC)
    • Indeed, at first glance i can see only one difference between Russian draughts and international draughts: in ID "one must play with the piece that can make the maximum captures." -- Jokes_Free4Me (talk) 08:06, 29 November 2014 (UTC)
  • Having played both versions, i can confirm there is another game-changing difference besides the kings' multiple-squares moves (and jumps) : in English draughts, "uncrowned pieces may jump only diagonally forward". Also, though somewhat less important IMO, is another difference: in ED "if a player's [uncrowned] piece jumps into the kings row, the current move terminates; the piece cannot continue on by jumping back out (as in a multiple jump), until the next move" -- Jokes_Free4Me (talk) 08:06, 29 November 2014 (UTC)
