Number of Players: 2 to 6 Object: To be the first player to move all of the player’s individual marbles out of the starting area, around the board, and into home, whether by going the distance or taking a shortcut.

Setting Up: Each player places his marbles in the starting area. After setting up, each player rolls the die. The highest number goes first, then play proceeds to the left. If two or more players roll the same number, they roll again to break the tie.

Die: The die that is being used in the game must be a normal die that has pointed corners. The sides of the die must be about a centimeter long.

Playing: To move a marble out of the Starting Area to the Starting Position, a player must roll a 1 or a 6. The Starting Position is the space just outside, and to the left of, the Home Area. After rolling a 1 or 6 a marble is placed on the Starting Position. If the player rolled a 1 or 6 he is allowed to roll again.

There is no limit to how many extra turns are allowed in regards to this rule. As long as a 1 or 6 is rolled, the player is allowed an extra turn. A player may never land on or pass one of his own marbles. If the number rolled on a player's turn puts him on or ahead of his own marble he must move the one in front.

If a marble lands on a space already occupied by an opponent’s marble, the opponent’s marble goes back to that player's Starting Area. If a player rolls a number that does not allow a marble to be moved, that turn is completed and goes to the next player in the sequence.


Best board games for a date?

by ---

Can anybody suggest a good, fun boardgame to play on a night in with a guy you've been dating a month and a half or so? He says he's always wanted to just hang out on a week night and play a board game but none of his girlfriends have ever been into it. I happen to LOVE board games, but my favorites are ones he doesn't like (Monopoly, Risk, etc.) I admit I haven't been board game shopping in a while, can anyone suggest something cool with rules that aren't too complicated?
