Aim of the game: gather together all your checkers on the hatched points and then bear them off into the green zone. Be quicker than your opponent and follow the direction of the arrows. Moving the checkers: after throwing the dice, the player may either move 2 checkers according to the numbers shown on each dice or move 1 checker by adding the two dice together. A checker may not be moved to a point already occupied by more than one of the opponent's checkers. If the player throws a double, he/she is allowed to move the value of each dice twice. If an opponent's checker is alone on a point, the opponent can take it. This checker is then placed on the bar. The player must remove all his checkers from the bar before he is able to continue.
