Movement Time

Playing Time











The game board has two timers:
Movement Timer: indicates the time that the player has to make an individual play. The timer resets at the beginning of every new play.
Game Timer: Begins after the movement timer has run out it can’t be reset. After the game timer runs out, the game finishes and the player loses

Game Board consists of 15-15 checkers of two different colors. Each color is assigned to each player. For all players own checkers are white, opponent’s – black.

All players may choose preferred game board color out of 3.

At the start of the game the system automatically rolls 2 dices, one for each player. The player with the higher dice score starts the game. If the scores are equal the system will roll the dice until one of the player’s dice score is higher.

The player with higher dice score has to move their checkers with the direction of their home board according to the score on dices.

A checker can be placed in a column where the number of opponent’s checkers isn’t more than 1. In case a player wants to place a checker in a column where the number of opponent’s checkers is 1, previously placed checker is hit. Hit checker reenters the game through opponent’s home board.

Removing a checker from the game board is available only after the player has placed all of their checkers in their home board. If a checker is hit during the process, it has to be returned to the home board.

Players have to play the maximum amount of the rolled dice score opportunity.

When the game is for up to 1 point the maximum bid exceeds the minimum bid of the game, a player is able to increase the bid during the game (announcing a double before making a move or rolling the dice). The opponent player is able to deny (loses and pays starting bid) or accept (continue with raised bid or offer bid increase).

Players have 20 seconds to respond after a double is announced, after it runs out, the system automatically refuses the double.

When the game is for more than 1 point, announcing a double increases the number of points in the current game.

A player may give up both the whole game and current round pushing “Give Up” button. In case of giving up the current round, the player loses points according to the board.

Mars – by the time the game finishes, the player has not removed any of their checkers from the board.

Cox (Georgian) - by the time the game finishes, the player has 1 or more died checkers.

Cox (European) - by the time the game finishes, the player has 1 or more checkers in opponent’s home board.
