Russkie Poddavki (Русские поддавки), also known as Russian Suicide Checkers or Russian Suicide Draughts in the west, is a popular variant of Russian Checkers. This misère version has been known for centuries. There are even tournaments in Russia.

The game can be played online on igGameCenter.


The winner is the first player to have no legal move: that is, all of whose pieces are lost or blocked. Otherwise the rules are the same as for Russian Checkers.
