Draught-board 8x8. 12 pieces on each side that may only move forward but capture forward and backwards. Only when a piece is kinged it may move backwards. If a jumping move (beating) is available, that move must be made even if other non-jumping moves are available. A player wins by capturing all of the opposing player's pieces, or by leaving the opposing player with no legal moves. Once, two brothers professional checker players got in trouble. They they've lowered the boom on wrong people, and been caught by them. These guys decided to punish them hard. They told the brothers to play checkers with each other, and the loser will be killed. They left draught-board and went out for a while, just told, that if the brothers will not finish the game before they back, they will finish the game for them, and which side will lose - will die. The brothers took the draught-board and realized, that there are only 12 black pieces and 8 white pieces. There is no way to escape, and these people keep their word. How to handle this situation? Please advice.
