Croda is a modern variant combining elements of International - and Turkish Draughts, but unlike its parents it's a 'doublegrid' game, meaning that it employs both the orthogonal and the diagonal grid.

It was invented by Croatian mathematics professor and Draughts master, the late Ljuban Dedić in order to create a draughts game with a smaller margin of draws. He did so by basically replacing the sideways move of a man in Turkish Draughts, by a diagonally forward move.
