| Showroom of beautiful draughts compositions
According to the composer or collegues, with white on move and wins, in moving diagrams!
A great variety of compositions that can be enjoyed: small, big, both game-related and phantasy starting positions, shot-combinations, forcings and
end games. Just scroll through the nine pages of the showroom, like in an art gallery presenting both realistic and abstract works of various artists with
divergent styles. Just skip those compositions you don't like: every draught player or composer will have a different taste, both for art and draught
Underlined names and words contain links to additional information of the authors and their compositions.
On purpose, the way white can win is not given by notation in order to allow you to solve the draughts problems instead of just playing and seeing
Comments between "quotation marks" are from the authors. Unfortunately, all comments are still only in Dutch (English translation will be made in
due time). On the other hand, without understanding of the authors' comments or comments from others, you may fully enjoy the draught compositions,
as the pieces, moves and shots will speak for themselves in these beautiful combinations!
The draught compositions on the next pages have been arranged in alphabetical order of the authors' names:
Cnossen, L J
