In Sorry, can I move a pawn that is right outside my start, then pick a move backward 4 spaces card to right outside my safety zone?

    @GendoIkari the linked questions asks if you can move into the safety zone (you can't -- that's not backwards); this asks if you can move to just outside it (you can)

Yes. From the rules, under "Moving Backwards":

If you have successfully moved a pawn backwards at least two spaces beyond your own START space, you may, on a subsequent turn, move into your own SAFETY ZONE without moving all the way around the board.


Yes, for sure, that's the best!

    Additionally, if this your frst 3 pawns are already in the Safety Zone you earn the right to say "Nya nya nya Nya-nya" to your opponents for the rest of the day. Dec 3 '15 at 4:32

    If you think "Sorry" is all luck, let's play for money. Sep 21 '16 at 21:24
