EQUIPMENT: Board with 24 points (triangles), 30 stones (playing pieces – 15 each of two contrasting colours), two pairs of dice (one for each player) and one doubling cube.

OBJECTIVE: To move all fifteen stones into the inner table and then begin to bear off (removing stones from the inner table and off the board). The first player to bear off all fifteen stones wins.
