Checkers & Draughts Wiki

80-Kletochnie Shashki ("80-Squares Checkers" - 80-клеточные шашки), also known as Sovietskie Shashki ("Soviet Checkers" - советские шашки), is a modern variation of Russian Checkers, which was invented in Russia around 1930 by Nikolai Spantsireti (1916-1991). In 1934, V. N. Russo wrote a 74-page book about the game titled Sovietskie Shashki: Rukovodstvo dlja Nachinajushhih ("Soviet Checkers: A Beginners Guide").


The game has the same rules as Russian Checkers except for the larger board and therefore the larger number of men.
