    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.
