Checkers & Draughts Wiki

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.


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.
