Checkers Around the World Invented Checkers Variants

Extreme Checkers Game

Another Checkers variant created by Peter Aronson in 2001 is the game of Extreme Checkers. He states that this is like playing two games of American Checkers at the same time, while combining the game with a War Variant Hasami Shogi-style custodian capture in addition to the regular capture by jumping.

Extreme Checkers Rules of Play:

~ Extreme Game Board ~

  • This extreme checkers game is played on a standard 8 x 8 checkerboard consisting of 64 alternating light and dark squares, but here all the squares are used.

  • The extreme checker board is positioned so that there is a dark double corner on the player’s right side and a dark single corner on the left.

  • Each player begins with 24 checkers with one opponent using light colored pieces and the other using dark colored pieces.

~ Object of Extreme Checkers Game ~

  • The extreme game objective is to capture all the opponent’s pieces on either the red or the black squares by jumping over them or sandwiching them so they can’t move, or else block the opponent so that he/she cannot move any further.

~ Game Starting Position ~

  • Each player positions the checker pieces on both the light and dark squares of the first three rows closest to the end line.

~ Extreme Game Moves & Capture ~

  • Single checkers are only allowed to move diagonally forward right or left by sliding into an adjacent unoccupied square or by jumping over an opposing checker to an empty square beyond.

  • Capture is a compulsory move and is achieved by jumping over one or more of the opponent’s checkers.

  • Maximum capture is required so that as long as there are opposing pieces in the path of the checker, these must be captured.

  • Capture by sandwiching the opponent is automatic, but the player is not required to move in order to capture this way.

  • An opponent’s checker is sandwiched when it moves to one end of a column or row of opposing men and a ‘friendly’ checker is at the other end.

  • If capture by sandwiching occurs at the edge of the board, then the capture may wrap around the corners.

~ Promotion to King ~

  • As in a game of American Checkers/Draughts, a single extreme checker is promoted to king when it reaches the opponent’s last row.

  • A king may move and capture in all four diagonal game directions.
