Hello Everyone,

I am translating board game instruction right now, and I have a problem with expressing one thing. I want to write that start square is free (so we have no counter on it). How sholud I express that? And does the start square sound correct for you?

Thanks in advance

    Start Square or Square One for me. Here are a few thoughts:

    Square One -- where you start the game -- has no counter on it.
    Square One --
    where the game begins -- is free: it has no counter on it.
    Square One -- where you begin the game -- is free: it has no counter on it.
    Square One -- where you begin play -- is free: it has no counter on it.

    You can mix and match or change to suit your tastes.

    I think a bit more context is needed. You also need to clarify whether it starts empty, whether it must remain empty, etc.
