This game is part of the checkers family.
It is mainly played in Malaysia and Singapore, particularly amongst the older men. It is distinct from Checkers and Canadian Checkers. A common alternative name used locally for this game is Dum.
It is played on a board of 144 squares with 30 pieces on a side. Un-promoted pieces can only move and capture forward. A promoted piece (king) moves like a chess bishop, and can capture a piece anywhere along its line of movement.
A turn must capture the maximum possible number of pieces. Failing to do so results in forfeiture of that piece. If there is a choice between pieces to use for capturing, the king takes precedence.
