How to Play?

  1. Choose the number of players, we can also choose players online or play with family and friends on a single device.
  2. Now roll the E-dice (bundled with Lenovo Horizon 27" AIO, instead of using inbuilt game dice).
  3. Players take turns in a clockwise order; highest throw of the die starts.
  4. Each throw, the player decides which piece to move. A piece simply moves in a clockwise direction around the track given by the number thrown. If no piece can legally move according to the number thrown, play passes to the next player.
  5. A throw of 6 gives another turn.
  6. A player must throw a 6 to move a piece from the starting circle onto the first square on the track. The piece moves 6 squares around the circuit beginning with the appropriately colored start square (and the player then has another turn). 
  7. If a piece lands on one of your opponent's, the opponent's piece is knocked off and returned to the starting circle.
  8. When a piece goes all the way round the board it can enter its Home Column.
  9. To land in Home Arrow one must throw the exact number.
  10. And in end don't forget to share your score with your friends on social media like Facebook.
