Player movement on a 3d game board like monopoly

Hello everyone,
First of all I wanted to say, that I am very new to Godot and game development itself. I am familiar with Python, so I thought Godot (with GDScript) might be a good place to start.

I want to develop a 3d board game (something like monopoly). I have already created an example of the game board as a 3d grid map. I also created an player as a kinematic body and a button on the left side on the screen.
Now, when the button is pressed a random number from 1 to 6 is determined, like like a die roll. The number rolled is passed to the player script. The game board is saved as a global variable during initialization (autostart variables). The player has access to the number rolled, as well as to the entire game board and where the playing fields are located.

Now to my real question: How can I move the player to the field that was rolled? What are my options, especially if I want to add animations later? How do I check whether the player has to change direction because the playing field does not continue in that direction? (see Monopoly)

I hope the picture and the code snippet help you all to understand what I mean:

extends KinematicBody

# Declare member variables here. Examples:
# var a = 2
# var b = "text"
export (int) var speed = 200
var destination = Vector3.ZERO

# Called when the node enters the scene tree for the first time.
func _ready():

# Called every frame. 'delta' is the elapsed time since the previous frame.	
func _physics_process(delta):
	pass # need some help right here i think

# The function is called as soon as the result of the die roll is known.
func _on_diceroll(result):
	destination = global.BOARD[result]

Sorry for my english, its not my main language.
I would appreciate any help. Thanks in advance

I am not really into 3D but i believe answer is universal. There is no need to bother with physics engine in this kind of project, You can use Tween node to animate movement between xyz points forming a path, kept in array. You only need to get positions in grid board where your pawns will be standing and organize these points in a path sorted according to direction of movement. You can make this path by code, but You can also use other editors tools like Path3d and make it manually. Finally movement can be executed with loop like in this pseudocode :

for x in range(dice roll) :

And single Tween animation may be set for one clockwise step along formed path
