During a capturing move, pieces are removed immediately after a capture.
In the Philippines, it is known as "derecha" and is played on a mirrored board, often replaced by a crossed lined board (only diagonals are represented). It is mainly played in the southeastern United States; traditional among African American players.When a man reaches the crownhead or kings row (the farthest row forward), it becomes a king, and is marked by placing an additional piece on top of the first man, and acquires additional powers including the ability to move backwards and (in variants in which they cannot already do so) capture backwards.The same as men, a king can make successive jumps in a single turn provided that each jump captures an enemy man or king.Flying kings are not used in English draughts, in which a king's only advantage over a man is the ability to move and capture backwards as well as forwards.In most non-English languages (except those that acquired the game from English speakers), draughts is called dame, dames, damas, or a similar term that refers to ladies.It is mainly played in the Netherlands, Suriname, France, Belgium, some eastern European countries, some parts of Africa, some parts of the former USSR, and other European countries A sequence of capture must give the maximum "value" to the capture, and a king (called a wolf) has a value of less than two men but more than one man.
If a sequence with a capturing wolf and a sequence with a capturing man have the same value, the wolf must capture.
Multiple enemy pieces may be captured in a single turn provided this is done by successive jumps made by a single piece; the jumps do not need to be in the same line but may "zigzag" (change diagonal direction).
In English draughts men can jump only forward; in international draughts and Russian draughts they may also jump (diagonally) backwards.
A case in point includes the Greek terminology, in which draughts is called "ντάμα" (dama), which is also one term for the queen in chess.
Pieces only promote when they land on the final rank, not when they pass through it.
Mainly played in Malaysia, Singapore and the region nearby. Sometimes it is also played on 8×8 board when 12×12 board is not available. If there are sequences of captures with a man and other ones with a king, it is necessary to capture with a king.
