Chapayev is a dexterity game originating in the former USSR that is played upon a checkers board. The game is a unique cross between checkers and billiards.
The aim of the game is to advance your row of checkers to the opposite side of the board by winning rounds. Rounds are won by knocking all your opponent's checkers off the board. Within a round, players alternate turns flicking checkers. If you succeed at removing a checker from the opposing team and keep your pieces on the board, you may flick again. When all the opponent's checkers are removed, you win the round and advance your line one row. If you win the round without losing any of your checkers, advance two rows. The army to reach the opposite side of the checkerboard wins!
