Each player starts with 15 counters and three
dice are rolled alternately to move them. When the dice are rolled the score is used to bring counters onto the board at “I” and move them towards “XXIV” where they leave the board.
The individual scores of the dice can be used to move different pieces or they can be added to move one piece the full distance.
Two of a players counters in one space ( Known as “Ordinari” ) mean that the
other player may not land on that space.
If a player lands on a space occupied by just one of his opponents counters ( Known as a “Vagi” ) that piece is captured and has to start again.
Players must use the value of all the dice unless all their moves are blocked in which case the remaining value goes to their opponent.
To enter the board takes one move, so a die roll of 1
lands the piece on space “I” and an exact roll is required to remove pieces as if they were landing one space beyond “XXIV”.
The winner is the first player to remove all their counters from the board.
