Rules of the game of checkers
The game takes place on a checkered board like chess, it consists of 12 white pawns and 12 black pawns and its objective is to eliminate or block the opposing pieces. The white pieces start the game, the turns are alternate and the movement of the pawns is carried out diagonally, forward and from square to square.

To capture an opposing piece, it must be in the neighboring square and then an empty square. Whenever an opposing piece can be captured, it is mandatory to do so. If we get a pawn to reach the opposite field we get a queen, that is, two pawns of the same color, one on top of the other. The queen has more freedom of movement, she can move forward and back a greater number of squares, but always diagonally.

The game ends when a player runs out of pieces, without possible moves or by abandoning the game.
