Is there any point in the 'must take' rule in draughts?
I keep switching it off in smartphone games in the belief that is pointlessly restrictive and tedious.

Yes. The point is that its a game of strategy, and forcing an opponent into a move is a strategy. It also prevents the game from becoming stale with both players just moving up the field until they're right next to each other, but with no way to take pieces.
Its a rule of the game. If you don't like it, don't play it.

Yes, there is. It is to add more skill to the game & to stop players cheating.

In official tournament rules you must take.
