From the company website

If you order the special KANGAROO Edition of MetaCheckers,
you can play Kangaroo Checkers, which adds another level of fun!

Any time you roll a 6, you can choose to roll the KANGAROO DIE and re-roll the NUMBERS DIE to take advantage of these additional moves:

THESE SPECIAL MOVES CAN CAPTURE THE KING

The JOKER
The wild card. Use any standard chess move,
still limited by the numbers die.

The DOUBLE KNIGHT
Move like a knight, TWICE.
Capture any enemy pieces you land on.

THESE SPECIAL MOVES CANNOT CAPTURE THE KING
(But they still make the game more fun!)

The KANGAROO
Hop and land anywhere on the board, capturing any checker except the king.

The PRINCESS
Jumps as far as dice allow, capturing any enemies she jumps over or lands on. If she jumps over the king, he would remain standing. If she were to land on him, she would stop 1 square short.

The COWBOY
Move an opponent’s piece as far as the numbers die will allow. (You can MOVE the king. Just not capture it.)

The TURNCOAT
Flip over an opponent’s piece.
(But NOT the king!)
From now on, that piece is yours.
(Unless your opponent gets the TURNCOAT roll
and chooses to flip it back.)
