The First Player To Get All Five Pieces Of His Color Into His Goal Wins!
TO MOVE A PIECE: Place the cursor arrow directly over the purple piece you would
like to move and then click on the left mouse button. This will highlight the piece.
Then, place the cursor over the hole you intend to move to and click again. This
will automatically reposition your piece to the new location.
TO MOVE A SHUTTLE: Place the cursor arrow directly over the purple arrow next to
the shuttle you wish to move and click the left mouse button. This will automatically
move the shuttle one position, left or right, depending on which side of the shuttle
you click the arrow.
REMINDER: You may only move the purple pieces, the purple shuttles and the center
yellow shuttle. (You may not move the yellow shuttle if the computer has just moved
it on the preceding turn.) The computer may only move the green pieces, the green
shuttles and the center yellow shuttle. GOOD LUCK!
