Players each put a marker on the

bottom (Start) of the board.

Players take turns to throw the dice.

The player then moves one space

onto a shape with the number of

sides shown on the dice.

For Example - If

1 is thrown a player

can only move onto a circle space.

A player can only move from one

space to an adjoining space in a

turn.

If a player cant move he can stay on

the same space. If a player doesnt

want to move backwards he doesnt

have to move.

The winner is the first player to reach

the top (Finish) of the board.

For example, if a player rolls 3, the player could then cover 4 and 1 in the top row. Once a number is covered, it remains covered. Remember the numbers covered must be beside each other or one under the other. A player wins when the other player is unable to cover 2 numbers on their turn.
