Aggravation Game Rules

For 2 to 6 players

Object of the game; Be the first player to move all 4 marbles from the start area to the home area following game instruction.

Board set up; All players place marbles in start area, each player rolls a die and the person with the highest number starts. The game is played clockwise.


The person that rolls the highest number starts; that person rolls 2 dice. The marbles can only be moved to the start position with either a 1 or 6. If a player rolls a 6 and 2, a player can only move to the start position + 2 . If a player rolls 1 and a 6, player could move to the start position plus move 6 forward. If a player has doubles on the dice example; 4 and 4, the player gets another roll of the dice.  The shortcut hole can be used to avoid going all the way around the board but is also more risky. To chase the opponent home a player will need to roll the exact number on the dice. Example; A player has only 1 marble on the game board that isn't in home or safety. The player needs 5 to chase them home. The player rolls a 5 and a 3, the player unable to chase him "home" because the 3 has to be used. If a player had rolled a 3 and a 2, the player would be able to chase them "home". Or if the player rolled a 5 and a 6 the player would be able to chase them "home" because the player could use a 6 to move another marble to the start position. If a player is able to chase you "home", that player get to have another turn. The player that has all their marbles in the "home" position first, is the player that wins.



A player can never jump or cross over their own marbles.
