The one in the center doesn't move at all. When sliding a rail, it's done one space left or right. However, there is no limit as to how far a rail may travel in a direction during the course of the game.

So the other slides may slide beyond the end cup of the center row so no 5-in-a-row can be available?

The rules do not give a limit, but I know on the all wood version, there is a rib that stops the movable slides at two off of center in either direction. I don't know if that is meant to be built in as a limit or placed for stability reasons. We play it as a limit.

The central 7x5 area is the FIELD OF PLAY. The rules state: "This area must contain 35 cups throughout the game."

So the limit is 2 spaces to the left or right of center.

Harvey Wasserman is correct. There have to be all the dice roll options on the board. Some versions of this game have it built into the board that the sliders cannot be pushed to far, others do not.

Living in Northwest Washington, near where the game was made, I think we see this game more frequently than others might. Our version that we own is a very attractive game and it is enjoyable to play. My wife go through spurts of playing this quite a lot.
