Diagonal checkers(1)

Diagonaldame also spelled Diagonal-Dame, is a variant of German Checkers. The author of the game is unknown.


The game has almost the same rules as German Checkers.

Differences are:

  • The men are initially in the corners. The double-corners point to the players.
  • The men promote in the opposite double-corner only and - unlike Diagonalnie Shashki only there.
