now, the correct way to play is, if you can jump, you are forced to. This is to prevent someone from not moving the bottom row, getting a king, and moving back and forth till the other player can't move. But, a lot of people don't even know this rule, and some refuse to play that way/think it's a stupid rule.
Personally, I played with the rule after I had learned about it

No I never played that way because I didn't know about that rule. But when I was played it on a computer it was that way and I thought that's just the way it was on the computer... blond moment.
I'll play it correctly for the rest of my life hahaha(:
