Thanks for getting in touch, Mike.


To place pieces on the bar, CTRL+drag does work, but you have to drag them to the other half of the bar. That is, the bottom player’s pieces go to the top half of the board. You can also put men on the bar by click+dragging, as you would to put them on a point. You have to start the drag just off-centre, and drag toward the edge. This works for up to 3 pieces.


Suggestions to developers:

When in edit mode, outline the bar area for each player in the checker colours.

Make the sensitive area larger for each player’s pieces.

When CTRL-Dragging, anywhere on the bar should be acceptable as the release point.



When you finish a game, it certainly is no obvious how to start the next one. Clicking as if to roll dice works for me.


Suggestions to developers:

Open a dialogue box to start a new game, or at least provide instructions.

Or, display some dice “parked” at the bottom of the screen, ready to be rolled.


I hope this is helpful, Mike. Please let us know if these solutions work for you.

Any idea how to set a position to rollout with a checker on the bar on the windows version?  Ctrl and dragging does not work.  Also when you have the computer finish a game, you cannot star the next game in a match.
