In the course of a move, a checker may land on a free point or a point occupied by the player's own checkers.
It may also land on a point occupied by exactly one opposing checker, or "blot". In this case, the blot has been hit, and is placed in the middle of the board on the bar that divides the two sides of the playing surface.

Checkers placed on the bar re-enter the game through the opponent's home board (the player's home board, ou "jans intérieurs" are represented on the next page).
The first point of the opponent's home board need a roll of "1", the second : "2" and so forth.

A player may not move any other checkers until all checkers on the bar belonging to that player have re-entered the game.
A checker can never land on a point occupied by two or more opponent's checkers.
