3 kings versus 1
We'll have a look at opposition, majority capture and 3 kings versus 1.
In Draughts, barring some 10.000 of over 2.500.000 three against one positions, one needs four kings to capture a lone king. The capture then is so easy that it suggests overkill.
Here's a position where three kings do the job, but it is the exception, not the rule.
Compared to Hexdame and especially Dameo, the situation in Draughts is embarrassing. This long range king came on a Trojan horse!
