You should look at the cards for Klingon Monopoly. It's set a
precedent for how to talk about movements on game boards. In
particular, {yer} is used for game square, though the game squares are
literally territories in that game, so maybe that doesn't generalise.

I'd be inclined to use a verb for moving one step with {N-logh}, and
split that sentence into two:
{chan wej botlhDaq puvwI' tu'lu'. 'evDaq loSlogh leng.}

(Bare in mind that I know nothing about the game mechanics. I'm
assuming that {chan wej botlh} makes sense as a location and that
{puvwI'} is a game piece.)
