An ancient Egyptian game-

The forerunner of Backgammon


1. Begin the game with your and your opponent’s pieces alternating in the top row

2. Roll the dice and move

  • Go again if you roll a 1, 4, 5, 6
  • Your turn is over (after you move) on a 2 or 3
  • If you can’t move, your turn is over
  • 3. Landing on an opponent’s occupied square ‘bumps’ his/her piece back to start

    4. If your opponent has 2 pieces in a row: no bumping

    5. If your opponent has 3 pieces in a row: you can’t pass

    6. No more than 1 piece on each square

    7. If none of your pieces can be moved, your turn is over

    8. Start removing pieces from the board only after all your pieces are out of the top row

    9. The first player to remove all pieces wins…
