Checkers & Draughts Wiki
Diagonal checkers(2)

Diagonalnie Shashki ("Diagonal Shashki" - Диагональные шашки) is a variant of Russian Checkers. The author of the game is unknown.


The game has almost the same rules as Russian Checkers.

Differences are:

  • Each player has only nine men.
  • The men are initially in the corners. The single-corners point to the players.
  • The men promote in the opposite single-corner or its nearest edge squares.
