Ruleset: Piccione

Game

See the game Senet for more details.

Summary

Rules proposed by Peter Piccione.

Description

These rules were proposed by Peter Piccione for the CADACO release "King Tut's Game."

Rules

Five pieces per player. Four sticks, with one flat and one round side, used as dice. The value of the throw is equal to the number of flat sides up; when all round sides are up the throw = 5. A throw of 5 grants the player another throw. Players may enter a piece onto the board with a throw of 1. When a piece is entered, another throw is granted which must be used to move that piece. Throws may be divided among the pieces on the board as a player sees fit. Splitting throws in this way cannot be used to enter a piece, but the throw which is granted to move an entered piece may be divided, as long as the entered pieces moves at least one space. Pieces cannot land on the same space. If a throw does not allow a piece to move forward, it must move backward. All pieces must move in the same direction during a turn. If it is impossible for a piece to move from square 1, it must be removed from the board and entered again. If a player cannot move forward or backward, the turn ends. Squares 15 and 26 grant the player an extra throw. If pieces land on these squares as a result of splitting a throw, that throw must be fully used before the new throw is taken. A piece which lands on square 27 is removed from the board and must enter again. Players must bear off the board by an exact throw. Pieces may not move backwards from squares 28, 29, or 30. Pieces are not required to bear off unless no other forward move is possible. The fist player to bear off all their pieces wins.
