I don't know of a scenario that is an example: if either number can be played but not both, the player must play the larger one. Can someone please explain when this rule should be used.
Player A has 14 stones on Player B's one-point, and a fifteenth stone on his 3-point.
Player B has a wall at least two points long running back from his two-point.
If player A rolls 1-2 he can move his fifteenth stone either one or two points (respectively to either the two-point or one-point), but cannot move it three (ie remove it) because not al his stones are in his Home board yet.
