The draughts model was initially implemented by Y.M.Au-Yeung (Regina) in 1996 a part of a 3rd year project. It was then built upon by Simon Rawles in 1997 as his 3rd year project. The user can play a game of draughts by clicking on the squares to specify start and end positions of moves. Piece which have already reached the other end (kings) have a red centre. There is no way to do multiple jump moves and take more than one piece in a single go and there are no rules to force the opponent to take a piece when they can. [Chris R]
