Rules of the game: Initial setting of checkers.
Each game is played by 2 to 6 players.
Each player has ten checkers, which are initially placed in the corners of the board.
The aim of the game is to place all checkers in the opposite corner of the board.
A move in Trilma consists in moving one of your checkers to next position or making a sequence of jumps along the lines that connect spots on the board. Checkers are never taken off from the board.
