#### Conduct of the Game

Initially all the marbles are divided by color and lined up in their respective Porta Biglie tablets, in the two longer recesses. The round hollow of the two tablets is the throne of the respective Queen Marbles, the lateral hollows instead, will contain the conquered marbles.

Each player chooses the color of their marbles, but whoever makes the first move is decided by hiding the two Queen Marbles in a player's hands and letting the opponent choose the hand that hides the marble that will start the game.

During the game, the marbles are taken by each player, from his own Porta Biglie tablet and played in turn by the two players. When they run out, the marbles on the game board must be played.

All marbles can be moved on the Game Tablet in the empty spaces / recesses.

#### The Biglia Queen

Defense Marbles are free to move without limitations.

Queen Marbles can move one free space adjacent to their own and can come into play at any time of the game; because the last one left to play or by strategic choice. When it is played it can never be taken back, in any subsequent winning moves.

#### Castle area

The area formed by the grooves adjacent to the Biglia Queen where it is free to move is called the Castle Area.

It is a vulnerable area, essential for obtaining the final victory. Making a Real that intersects the contender's Castle Area allows you to conquer the opposing Biglia Queen and win the game.

#### Real and Real Queen

To achieve this, you need to weaken your opponent by conquering multiple Defense Balls, which defend the Queen Ball. To win marbles to our contender, you need to make reals.

Real is the main and most frequent move of the game, and is the combination of four consecutive marbles of the same color, lined up on the Game Tablet, in any direction: horizontal, vertical or oblique.

The player who realizes a Real, conquers and subtracts from the Game Tablet, a Defense Ball of his choice to the opponent and takes back two of the four marbles, with which he made the combination.

Realizing a Real with a Biglia Queen allows you to obtain a Real Queen, which allows you to subtract two Defense Marbles of your choice. Two more from the Real Queen are to be filmed back.

#### Real Specials

Super Real - If you make a Real with five consecutive marbles, you get a Super Real. In this case, two marbles are subtracted from the opponent, taking three of the combination made, so as to always leave two on the Game Tablet.

If the Super Real is also made with the Biglia Queen, we get a Super Real Queen. We can optionally subtract three marbles from the opponent, always taking three of the combination made, except the Biglia Queen.

Double Real - If with a single ball placed on the Game Tablet, a player makes two Reals, you get a Double Real. Two marbles are subtracted from the opponent, taking three of them, so as to leave four marbles on the Game Tablet, which must never make up a Real.

If the Double Real is also made with the Biglia Queen, we get a Double Real Queen. We can optionally subtract three marbles from the opponent, recovering three (never the Biglia Queen), in such a way as to leave four marbles on the Game Tablet that must never make up a Real.

#### Winning Real and Winning Real Queen

The decisive and winning attack is obtained with a Real that directly invades the Castle Area of the opposing Biglia Queen. That is, when one or more of the four marbles that make up the combination of Real, occupies one of the grooves surrounding the Biglia Queen. In this case you get a Winning Real that allows you to win the game.

Winning Real takes the name of Winning Real Queen, if obtained with a Real Queen that directly invades the opposing Castle Area of the Biglia Queen. That is, when one or more marbles of the four that make up the combination of the Real Queen, occupies one of the grooves surrounding the Biglia Queen.

Again we win the game but with a more prestigious combination!
