Players get given either black or white pieces. These face each other in a diagonal pattern across the 64 square board. Pieces can either move one square diagonally, or more by hopping over the opponents pieces and "taking" them.
At first, the players will move towards each other but soon they will get into a position where they can take the other player. If they can they have to take the other player, they cannot move if an opportunity to take is available.
There is one other rule. If a player reaches the opponents end of the board then their piece is crowned. A crowned piece can move both backwards and forwards.
