I have heard that the rules of draughts are different in different countries, which kindda shocked my view of the game. Moreover, I was told the version of the rules I used was not the one considered to be the Portuguese one. I\'ve always played the way my grandfather taught me, which he learned in the military (while staying in Moçambique, I believe): the pieces move forward in diagonals one square a time (two if capturing a piece within a one-square-forward reach) and the \"kings\" (we call them +/- \"ladies/queens\") move in any diagonal any number of squares and capture the same way, being it obligatory to capture whenever possible (except in chain captures). How do you play it?-

Kings move one square forwards or backwards, still in diagonals, but only one square and they don\'t have to capture.-
