Kingsrow International

New (5/30/2014): I have reformatted the endgame databases to make the files much smaller. The 2 though 8 pieces database are now 56GB. Kingsrow users that have the larger original databases can download the new database files using links at the program download page.

I have been working on an international draughts version of Kingsrow since 2006. The program is now mature and I am making it and the endgame databases available for purchase. This is the only complete 8-piece endgame database for international draughts that is available to the public, the product of 5.6 core-years and 9 calendar months of computing effort. Even without the large endgame databases, the Kingsrow program is very strong, with an excellent record against other programs under tournament conditions.

Purchasing Kingsrow with 8-piece db

The price for the program and 8-piece endgame database is $40. The endgame database files are downloaded from the Mega file server. These are very large files and you will need a reasonably fast internet connection. The install files for 2 through 8 pieces are 40GB. Downloading all the files can take a day or longer, depending on your internet speed and the loading on the file server. You can find links to the endgame database install files here:

I can accept payment with a credit card or PayPal. To purchase, click the Buy Now button below. This will take you to a PayPal website where you can enter either your credit card or PayPal account info to complete the transaction. When I receive your payment I will send you an email with links for installing the program.

If you cannot use a credit card or PayPal, then Western Union is an alternative.

If you have questions, send me an email.

Program Information

Complete documentation for Kingsrow International can be found here: KingsrowIntlHelp_English.chm. It includes information to install and operate the program. The Features and Requirements sections are also replicated below.

Because you downloaded the file from the Internet, in order to view it you will need to tell Windows that it is safe to view. Save the file to a local drive, browse to it with Windows Explorer, right click on the filename, click Properties, click the Unblock button, then OK. You should now be able to view the document by double-clicking on the filename.




Here are some things that you should consider before purchasing.
