Quirkat is a game of ancient Egyptian origin which was brought by the Arabs to Spain in the 8th century.
The compulsory rule forcing a player to take whenever possible was introduced in France around 1535.
Quirkat is the predecessor of the well-known game checkers.
The players alternately move one of their pieces along a line to the next crossing point or jump over one or multiple of the opponents pieces. If a player can jump, he must do so and may not make another move. A player wins when he has jumped all of the opponents pieces.
