- Author: Govert Westerveld
- Status: Public
- Number of pages: 399
The first Spanish books about the game of draughts have a very high level and date from the XVI
century, while the first French book comes from the XVII century and the game described is a
very elemental one. Contrary to this evidence, the scholars did not consider it necessary to grant
Spain the honour of being the creative country of the game of draughts and of the new modality in the chess game with the new dama. Both the alquerque-3 as the alquerque-9 games were known in Roman times. Completely different is the situation for the game alquerque-12 game. It is said that the alquerque has its origin in Egypt. Perhaps this is the case for the alquerque-3 and alquerque-9 games, but never for alquerque-12 game. Some authors claim that the alquerque-12 game is a Greek or Roman game, but the great expert of these games, Dr. Ulrich SchÃ¤dler, discards it. This book is the first proof that the alquerque-12 game was not popular at all in France, but much more in Spain, where the new chess game and draughts game were invented.
