It is a variant of checkers played in Armenia, where it is known as Tama.
The rules of Tama are similar to the rules of Turkish Checkers. In Tama, however, players are allowed to move (not to capture) their pieces in diagonal directions:
- ordinary checkers can move one cell sideways, one cell forward or one cell diagonally forward.
- kings can move exactly as chess queens.
The captures are exactly the same as in Turkish Checkers.
