Stavropolskie Shashki (Ставропольские шашки), also known as (Russian) Stravropol Checkers or (Russian) Stravropol Draughts in the west, is a variant of Russian Checkers, which is popular in Moscow and St. Petersburg.

The game can be played online on igGameCenter.

Rules[]

The only difference to Russian Checkers is that each player can choose between moving his own pieces or the pieces of his opponent. If a player moves the men of his opponent, they must always move towards himself. Any possible capture is forced. On his turn a player must perform the capture for either color. The goal is the same as in Russian Checkers. A player wins by leaving the opposing player with no legal moves, i.e. by capturing or blocking all of the opposing player's pieces.
