Rules

Post by JehanBon »

I just play a game and I saw that we don't have to take a disc when we can.
I'am pretty sure the rules of the game give is the obligation to do. Without this rules it take off a lot of strategy.

if you don't capture (or capture less than you are able depending on the variant) when you are able your opponent can contest the move by showing a move that captures (more) pieces.

According to the rules, it is a draw...

Sorry, but I feel it shouldn't.

Makes me wonder why once you chose a man then see a move that captures more you can't choose the piece you MUST move...

Ok, I had never heard of this refute feature or rule, couldn't find it anywhere. and nothing in any of the drafts-checkers rules I can see online suggests that maximum taken peices is a mandate. seems like and shows up like a way for someone to set a trap, and if the opponent sees it, they cannot avoid it, are forced to step into it. doesn't seem sportsmanlike.

The implementation of checkers on BGA is very poor.
Not being able to automatically determine legal moves and forcing the opponent to check the legality of the moves is very lazy programming.
Also, the rules for draw are mixed up between different variants and this brings up unfair draws, as highlighted by Brytzwa.

I hope these things will be corrected at some point, but for now, I suggest playing on other sites (Playstrategy or Lidraughts).
