  • How players move on the board: players move by rolling the die, but they have to say the direction they want to go before rolling the die. First, you roll one die and take the quantity of steps the die says and then you roll the other die and do the same. Also, if you get the same number in the second die you stay without gasoline for that turn.

If he rolls: 1 or 2 is straight, 2 or 4 backwards, 5 is right, and 6 to the left. The police can rich one whole street per turn. Also, let’s say the police is in the right corner and you roll the die and get a 5 which is to the right the police will keep moving to the right, but starting from the left corner of the same street.
