Checkers & Draughts Wiki

Shashki Vigmana ("Vigman's Checkers" - Шашки Вигмана) is a variant of Russian Checkers, which was invented by Vladimir Vigman (Latvia). The game is similar to Double-move Shashki.


The game has almost the same rules as Russian Checkers.

Differences are:

  • Each player has 24 pieces on both colors of the board and simultaneously plays two intermingled games.
  • Each player makes two moves per turn. Unless he can capture, he can choose if he plays one move on each color or two moves on the same color.
  • If he can capture after the first move, he must do so in the second move.
  • If a player cannot make a second move, he loses.
