Description

Makvœr is a form of Draughts played in Denmark, known since the beginning of the nineteenth century. It introduces restrictions on the "flying leap" of promoted pieces.

Rules

8x8 board, twelve pieces per player, arranged on the black spaces. Pieces move diagonally one space, or may hop an opponent's piece to capture it. When a piece reaches the opponent's edge of the board, the piece becomes a "Dam," and may move diagonally any number of spaces, including to jump over one piece, but such a capture can only be made when moving in a forward direction. The player who captures all the opponent's pieces wins.

Jörgensen 1802: 339.
