Orthogonal Draughts has always struck me as a variant best played on a corner orientation, in order to have two diferent 'forward' directions rather than introduce a reversible pair of 'sideways' ones. This is illustrated on my Cornucopia of 9x9 Corner Variants page. Another approach is a Wellisch-orientated hex board, as illustrated on my Compact Hex Chess page.
