Checkers Jumping Rules: Kings, Doubles, Triples, Backwards ...
Yes, but only with a king. Regular pieces can’t move or jump backwards. A king can also double jump or more backwards. Technically, there is no sideways in checkers. You’ll always be moving or jumping diagonally forward or diagonally backward. If you alternate one with the other, you’ll essentially be jumping sideways. Again, only a king can do this. You cannot jump directly sideways.
