Description Edit | History

This game, played mainly in Quebec, is different enough from Checkers to be called a distinct game. It is played on a 12 x 12 board of 144 squares with 30 pieces on a side.

Un-promoted pieces can capture forward or backward. A promoted piece (queen) moves like a chess bishop, and can capture a piece anywhere along its line of movement.

One of the rules that set it apart from Draughts and Checkers is Compulsory Capturing. Once begun, you must take all the pieces you are able without stopping short. To do so means the forfeiture of your piece. This can be a strategic move but trying it more than once during a tournament is not advisable.

This game is part of the Checkers Family

1 Canadian Checkers game board
This is the original file from which I made a Game Crafter edition of Canadian Checkers, provided here so that others may adapt it for other printers, such as SuperiorPOD. To use with TGC it had to be split in half and lightened in order not to print too darkly.

1 Artscow Canadian Checkers board
This file is the same as the first, except that it has been lightened somewhat in order to print a little better. This second version is actually what is in place at the Artscow project link. The original file printed to my satisfaction, but some may prefer it less dark.
