For example, if you roll a double 4, you may move 4 x 4 with your checkers. Now comes the difference to the classic Backgammon rules. When a checker is borne off. It can do so if it stands alone on a square and the opponent places his checker on it. Then it is captured and can only be moved further once it is free again.
