Improper False Illegal
Checkers Moves

~ Improper, False, or Illegal Moves ~

If a tournament player makes an improper, false or illegal move during the tournament match, he/she will be cautioned at the first instance, and then the move will be recalled and played again. This procedure will be enforced during any one of the following situations:

  • Illegal move, player fails to jump or omits to complete a multiple jump.

  • On player’s improper move, touches a checker that is not in a movable position.

  • In an ordinary or a jumping move, player moves a checker onto a wrong square.

  • Illegal move, player moves a checker backwards.

  • In a jumping improper move, removes opponent’s checker(s) that have not been jumped.

  • In a jumping move, removes one or more of own checkers.

  • Player continues a jumping move through the King row with a checker.

  • Player moves a checker out of turn.

  • If any checkers are accidentally nudged, moved or displaced by the players or through circumstances beyond their control, the checkers are replaced without penalty and the game is continued. This is not applicable when you play checkers online.

  • However, should a second improper, false or illegal move take place during the same game, the game will end in forfeiture for the offending player. Also, a player who fails or refuses to adhere to the tournament rules will forfeit the checkers match immediately.

    ~ Unforeseen Improper Disputes ~

    During the tournament, should a dispute arise that cannot be settled satisfactorily in the interest of all parties by the governing tournament rules, when there is improper false illegal checkers questions, then a written statement declaring the facts of the dispute must be sent to a neutral arbiter. This arbiter must have knowledge of the game of checkers and all the conditions that apply, and must be acceptable to both players. Arbiter will then make a decision to resolve the dispute, and this decision shall be final.
