For example, player 1 starts the game and decides they want to move their checker to the square that says "9 + 6". (See picture below.) The player will first have to say this addition fact out loud, along with the correct answer in order to move their piece to that square. So they would say out loud,
"Nine Plus Six Equals Fifteen".
Since they stated the addition fact correctly, they move their piece to the empty space. In the picture below player mover their piece to the 9 + 6 square.
The picture below shows the player in black attempting to capture the red player's piece. The yellow arrow points to the empty square the player is trying to get to while leaping over the opponent's piece.
The player says aloud,
"Seventeen minus Eight equals Nine"
