Alquerque is known as one of the oldest board games, with an exceptionally large number of „offsprings”. In Europe, its most popular descendent is Dama with a dozen variations, while games of the same family exist in the Americas, in Asia and in Africa too. The game gained wide popularity on its Spanish name Alquerque, and eventually became topmost entertainment as Jeu de Dames in France. Alquerque is a typical combat game. The objective is to capture or at least block all of the opponent’s pieces.
