Rules of Checkers to the Max™

Checkers to the Max™ was invented by Stan Druben. It is played in exactly the same way as Checkers except for the following differences:
  • All pieces start off the board in the player's hand.
  • Instead of making a normal move, a player can drop one of his in-hand pieces onto the board, onto any of the spaces which his pieces would normally start on.
  • Capturing still takes precedence over dropping pieces.
  • The games ends when one player has no legal capture, move, or drop. That player loses the game.

The notation for a drop is a single coordinate of the space where the piece should be dropped. (e.g. D4)
