On the first turn, players get three throws, and enter a piece for every throw of 10 or 25. On the top left square in their arm. Players move their pieces around the board in an anti-clockwise direction. When a piece lands on a space occupied by an opponent's piece, the opponent's piece is removed from the board and must enter again. Pieces resting on marked squares are safe from being removed from the board. When a piece completes a circuit of the board. It moves toward the central row in the player's arm, and progresses up the central row into the large square in the center of the board. The player who moves all of their pieces into the center first wine.
