Can I jump over opponent's pieces which occupy intersections?
No. You're pieces may only jump over your own pieces which occupy intersections.
When can I move more than 1 piece (i.e., a "stack") together?
Under two circumstances:
You roll doubles; this allows you to take 4
moves of the # you roll, rather than only 2 moves (as when you don't roll
doubles). Then you could, for example, use all 4 moves available
to you to move a stack of 4 pieces, assuming each move is valid
individually. Conceptually, you would really be moving each piece individually, but as long as the result of the moves would be the same either way, it can save time to move them together. When playing Chebache Online, each piece must be moved individually, unless they are jumping.
The other way you can move more than 2 pieces together as a stack or portion of a stack is to jump them during the jumping phase of the turn.
When Jumping, pieces move as a stack or a portion of a stack, maintaning their stacking order. The pieces that are jumping must remain togther throughout a series of jumps within a given turn. (You may not pick up or drop off pieces during a series of jumps.)
