To start the game each player throws one die, the result are 5 and 1. The one who plays 5 begins; you can either move your dice 5 points and 1 or you can move the same 6 points. You can only move to an open space or with one checker only.
I got a double 3 and 3; double means you can move the checkers two times the result you got that means I can move 12 times. One of the example is moving with my white checker three times and nine with another checker one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine. In next video you will learn about hit and block and entering from the bar.
