• Brazilian Draughts is played by two players. Each player begins the game with 12 colored discs. (Typically, one set of pieces is black and the other red.)

• The board consists of 64 squares, alternating between 32 dark and 32 light squares. It is positioned so that each player has a light square on the right side corner closest to him or her.

• Each player places his or her pieces on the 12 dark squares closest to him or her.

• White moves first. Players then alternate moves.

• Moves are allowed only on the dark squares, so pieces always move diagonally. Single pieces are always limited to forward moves (toward the opponent).

• A piece making a non-capturing move (not involving a jump) may move only one square.

• A piece making a capturing move (a jump) leaps over one of the opponent's pieces, landing in a straight diagonal line on the other side. Only one piece may be captured in a single jump; however, multiple jumps are allowed on a single turn.

• The pieces are removed from the board only after the jump sequence, in other words, the captured piece is not removed before the last jump.

• If a player is able to make a capture, there is no option - the jump must be made. If more than one capture is available, the player is free to choose whichever he or she prefers.

• The captures in Brazilian Draughts follow the maximum capture compulsory rule, i.e., if you have more than one choice to make a capture you must to make the capture sequence where there is the maximum number of opponent captured pieces.

• Back captures made by a piece (non-kings) are allowed.

• When a piece reaches the furthest row from the player who controls that piece before a single move (non-capturing), it is crowned and becomes a king. The piece cant become a king during a capture, only before the capture sequence.

• Kings are limited to moving diagonally, but may move both forward and backward. (Remember that single pieces, i.e. non-kings, are always limited to forward moves.). Also, kings can move any number of available squares instead only one square per move how are with non-kings pieces.

• A player wins the game when the opponent can't make a move. In most cases, this is because all of the opponent's pieces have been captured, but it could also be because all of his pieces are blocked in.

• The game will draw if both players agree or automatically when at least 40 moves (i.e., 20 moves by each side and remembering that a capture sequence is a single move) without capturing and without king promotion was made by both players.
