Schlagdame is German Suicide Checkers. This misère version of German Checkers has been known for centuries. It is still quite popular.

In 1841, the "Universal-Lexikon der Gegenwart und Vergangenheit oder neuestes encyclopädisches Wörterbuch der Wissenschaften, Künste und Gewerbe" by Heinrich August Pierer explains:

"Bei der Schlagdame findet das findet das umgekehrte Verältnis Statt, indem hier der gewinnt, dessen Steine alle geschlagen sind, während der Gegner noch mit einem od. mehrern auf dem Brete ist."

RulesEdit

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 German Checkers.
