Once a player has moved all of his fifteen pieces into his home board, he may commence bearing off, that is, removing the pieces off the board. A roll of 1 may be used to bear off a piece from the 1 point, a roll of 2 may be used on the 2 point, and so on.
In order to bear off, simply move the piece off the board, at the common side of the board and the home board. The appearing box shows the pieces already borne off by both players.
A dice may not be used to bear off pieces from a lower-numbered point unless there are no pieces on any higher points.
A player is under no obligation to bear off if he can make an otherwise legal move.
