Every player has fifteen checkers to start with. These checkers are placed on opponents one-point. The players have to move their checkers in different direction on the Plakato board. At the start of the game each player rolls one dice and the player with the highest roll gets the chance to start. Unlike backgammon the player has to again roll the dice to begin his first turn. A player who has won a game starts the next game. The number of points, or pips, or the places a player can move his checkers is decided by the roll of the dice.
