Player turns are determined using the "lai lai li tam plong" method followed by the " wan to som" need to be done before starting the game, after which all the players place their 'gundu' or 'game piece' on the first square. The first player starts the game by jumping straight to the second square with one foot without stepping on the first square that has his gundu inside it.

He will then continue the game to return to the first square by stepping on the sixth, seventh, eighth and ninth squares with one foot. When he arrives at the ninth square he has to pick his gundu on the first square placed earlier then jump straight to the finishing line.
