Partnership Play

Your partner will play opposite you on the board. Game play is similar to individual play except for the following:

  1. You can jump over your partner's marbles.

    If you land on one of your partner's marbles by exact count, you must "aggravate" it by sending it back to BASE.

  2. If all of your marbles are HOME safe, you still continue to roll the die in turn. Your partner then moves his or her marble(s) the number of spaces you roll.

The first partnership to get all of its marbles HOME wins the game.


Team Play

Each team consists of three players. Team members are seated alternately around the board. The game is played as in partnership play except for the following:

  1. A player with all marbles HOME safe continues to roll the die in turn.

    If both of his or her team- mates are still on the board, the player must declare, before rolling the die, which teammate is to use the number he or she rolls

  2. When the marbles of two team members are HOME safe, both these players roll the die in turn The team member still on the board moves his or her remaining marble(s) according to the numbers rolled.

The first team to get all of its marbles HOME wins the game.
