In Leapfrog Checkers
a Frog (Man) and a Toad (King) can perform this long jump provided that the enemy piece didn't move just before
. So this is the other form of deferral. Otherwise it's the same as English/American checkers. How to get children interested in checkers games? Let them play with long-jumping Frogs and Toads on an 8x8 board, where the squares represent water-lily leaves. At least on the bigger boards, it is clearly a challenging game, although it develops faster than traditional checkers variants.
In the topmost variants the Man is somewhat weaker. In Accelerated Draughts
it is stronger. Adding deferred leapfrog capture to International Draughts
makes it a remarkably dynamic game. It is suitable for any board size. The bigger the board, the more will the rule contribute to rapidness of play development. In the following diagram, Black sacrifices five Men, only to capture five enemy Men back. Since play takes place over the whole board, it makes sense to play on such a big board (South African Dumm board, 14x14).
