Checker-Pawn Chess is the usual Western Chess game played with
Anglo-American Checkers/Draughts pieces instead of Pawns.
The usual Chess setup is used:
RulesThe rules to Checker-Pawn Chess are almost identical to FIDE Chess, except that the Pawns move like Checker pieces. They move diagonally forward one space at a time and capture by a short leap diagonally forward. When a Pawn reaches the other side of the board, the owning player has the choice of promoting it to either a Checkers-King or a Chess-Queen. A Pawn may make multiple captures in a single move like a Checker piece, but unlike a Checker piece, is not forced to capture.
A Checker-King is not a royal piece, but simply a Checker-Pawn that may move and capture diagonally backwards as well as forwards.
