Rules of play
Each player has nine pieces, or "men", which move among the board's twenty-four spots. The object of the game is to leave the opposing player with fewer than three pieces or, as in checkers, no legal moves.
The game begins with an empty board. Players take turns placing their pieces on empty spots. If a player is able to form a straight row of three pieces along one of the board's lines (i.e. not diagonally), he has a "mill" and may remove one of his opponent's pieces from the board; removed pieces may not be placed again. Players must remove any other pieces first before removing a piece from a formed mill. Once all eighteen pieces have been used, players take turns moving.
Moving the pieces
To move, a player slides one of his pieces along a board line to an empty adjacent spot. If he cannot do so, he has lost the game.
As in the placement stage, a player who aligns three of his pieces on a board line has a mill and may remove one of his opponent's pieces, avoiding the removal of pieces in mills if at all possible.
Any player reduced to two pieces is unable to remove any more opposing pieces and thus loses the game.
In one common variation, once a player is reduced to three pieces, his pieces may "fly", "hop" or "jump" to any empty spots, not only adjacent ones. Some sources of the rules say this is the way the game is played, some treat it as a variation, and some don't mention it at all. A '19th Century Games Manual

Count Across™ Instructions
OBJECT OF GAME
The first player to place four chips in a row, either vertically, horizontally or diagonally wins the game.
1 Wooden Tray with Content Holder 1 Clear Plastic Slide with holes
1 Two-sided Number Board
25 Purple chips 25 Green chips 1 pair of dice
Each player selects a set of chips (purple or green). Decide which side of the number board to play, Addition Only (blue side) or Addition & Multiplication (red side). Line up the Number Board underneath the Clear Plastic Slide so that the numbers line up through the holes. The raised tab on the Clear Plastic Slide should be face up. Slide the Number Board and Clear Plastic Slide into the Wooden Tray together. The Number Board should rest underneath the Clear Plastic Slide. Each player rolls the dice once to determine who plays first. The player with the highest roll goes first (Player 1).
Addition Only Play
The Player 1 rolls the dice and adds the two numbers on the dice. Places one of your chips on the Number Board over an empty number space that matches the total of the dice.
Example: A play a rolls a 5 and a 3. 5 + 3 = 8
Player 1 finds an empty number 8 space on the Number Board and places a chip into that slot. Player 1 may choose any open 8 on the number board, but may only place one chip on the board per turn.
Player 2 then rolls the dice and places a chip in a space on the number board that matches the total of the dice. Play continues back and forth until one player gets 4 chips in a row, horizontally, vertically or diagonally. A player can remove an opponent's chip from the board in the following instances:
• If a player rolls doubles, they may remove an opponent's chip if it occupies a space that matches the total of the dice. Example: A player rolls a 4 and a 4. 4 + 4 = 8 and if an opponent has a chip in an 8 space on the Number Board, the player may remove the opponent's chip and replace it with his or her own chip.
• If a player rolls the dice and there are no empty spaces matching the total of the dice, the player may remove an opponent's chip that occupies a number space that matches the roll (if only the player's chips occupy those spaces). Then the play ends.
Addition & Multiplication Play
The rules are identical to the Addition Only play, except on each roll players may choose to either Add or MUltiply the numbers rolled. Example: A player rolls a 5 and a 3. The player may do one of the following:
• Add the dice together (5 + 3 = 8) and place a chip over an empty 8 space on the number board
• Multiply the dice (5 x 3 = 15) and place a chip over an empty 15 space on the number board
Warning! Do not throw out the Content Holder. It serves as a platform for the number board as well as storage for the chips and dice.
