How far can a piece move if it is not jumping? One square only?

What about kings? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) at 1 January 2003

Men can only move one square, and must jump backwards if can jump backwards. Kings can move many squares, and must jump the greatest amount of checkers. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) at 24 June 2004


Rather than saying "In contrast to popular belief in the Netherlands, captures by crowned pieces do not have priority over captures by ordinary pieces.", wouldn't it be more accurate to say that captures by crowned pieces having priority over captures by ordinary pieces is a Dutch regional variant?

No, the idea is just ignorance and misconception. Not a local variant. Andries 14:30, 28 Dec 2004 (UTC)
No, if people actually play that way, then the article should say so, without POV. (talk) 17:39, 2 June 2011 (UTC)

Comparison to other Draughts[edit]

This page should be updated to achieve the same look and information of other Draught pages, notably, the English draughts page. It doesn't include things like game complexity. 14:03, 27 February 2006 (UTC)

Feel free to find a source of that information that the article can cite. (talk) 17:41, 2 June 2011 (UTC)


When was this developed? Where? Why does it have the "Polish" name"? These things need to be included in the article. ChozoBoy (talk) 01:11, 31 December 2009 (UTC)

Yes that is a great NEED. --P64 (talk) 20:32, 19 February 2015 (UTC)
A good accounting is given in: Murray, H. J. R. (1978). "§4.3.7 Polish draughts". A History of Board-Games other than Chess (Reissued ed.). Hacker Art Books Inc. pp. 80–81. ISBN 0-87817-211-4.  Ihardlythinkso (talk) 03:09, 20 February 2015 (UTC)
