• Modern Draughts

    Modern draughts (also called Killer Light) is a variant of Dame
    (International Draughts). The only difference is the following: in a
    capture sequence (but not single piece capture), if the last captured
    piece is a Dame (King), the captor must stop at the immediate next cell
    after the last jumped piece. This serves to reduce the drawishness of
    the game, since it means that three Dames will win against a lone Dame.
    Note that, unlike in Killer Draughts, the halt rule is not valid at
    single piece capture.
