# What happens if your partner hits you in Pegs and Jokers?

Question for marble movement.

Your partner has a marble in their in-spot (start of home). If you hit that marble with yours, what happens to your partners marble? And yours?

We have been playing with this sequence of events:

• The rule is that when you hit your partners marble it is sent to its in-spot.
• That position is now occupied by your marble so now your partners marble hits yours and sends you to your in-spot.
• The end result would be both of you are in your in-spots.

Any thoughts on this play?

Yes, that is actually (and strangely) correct.

Rule 3:

• If a player lands on a hole occupied by a teammate's ("your partner's") pegs, the teammate’s peg is moved to the hole directly in front of his/her home position ("the in-spot").
• If your partner's home position hole ("in-spot") is occupied by one of his/her own pegs then move that peg to his/her start position ("start area").
• If your partner's home position hole ("in-spot") is occupied by any other peg, follow rules 3 and 4 recursively until the last peg has found an unoccupied hole.

Rule 4:

• If a player lands on a hole occupied by an opponent’s peg, the opponent’s peg is returned to the opponent’s start position.

Some of the basic rules:

• You cannot pass or land on your own marble (either moving forward or moving backward).
• You can pass or land on your partner's or an opponent's marble.
• If you lands on your partner's marble, your partner's marble is moved to its in-spot
(the space just outside of the safe/home area).
If your partner's in-spot is occupied by one of your marbles, that marble is moved to its in-spot and then the landed on marble is moved to your partner's now empty in-spot.
If your partner's in-spot is occupied by any other marble, that marble is returned to its starting position ("start area").
• If you lands on an opponent's marble, the opponent's marble is returned to its starting position ("start area").
