The king is also part of the game
Do you know what most beginners want when they have a king? Another king. And they forget to play with the one they already have.
In DIAGRAM 1 Henk played with white against Bas with black. Henk says: I am locked and he gave away 2 pieces.
After the game the teacher said to Henk
Play with your King.
Game of the week: mini-draughts
Here is a nice game: a match of 6 against 6. You play on a small draughtsboard with 36 fields. You can make it yourself by covering the edges of the big board.
Or you draw it yourself on a piece of carton.
Here is the beginning position
All rules and plans of the “big” draughts game you will meet. A very good exercise.
