Description

HexDame is a draughts game played on a Hex board invented by Christian Freeling in 1979.

Rules

Pieces move one step forward. Otherwise, the rules are the same as International Draughts: Pieces can jump an opponent's adjacent player to capture it. Pieces can move forward or backwards. When a piece reaches the opposite edge of the board from its starting position, it becomes a king and can may move and jump over any number of spaces diagonally. Captures are compulsory and the maximum number of jumps must be made. Winning is achieved by capturing all the opponent's pieces or by blocking them from moving.
