Backgammon is one of the oldest board games known, it’s history can be traced back nearly 5,000 years to archeological discoveries in the Middle East. A Two Player game involving a combination of strategy and luck. While the dice may determine the outcome of a single game, the better player will accumulate the better record over series of many games, somewhat like poker.

It is a two player game where each player has fifteen pieces (checkers) which move between twenty-four triangles (points) according to the roll of two dice. The objective of the game is to be first to bear off, i.e. move all fifteen checkers off the board.

To start the game, each player rolls one die, and the player with the higher number moves first using the numbers shown on both dice. If the players roll the same number, they must roll again. Both dice must land completely flat on the right-hand side of the gameboard. The players then alternate turns, rolling two dice at the beginning of each turn. With each roll of the dice, players must choose from numerous options for moving their checkers and anticipate possible counter-moves by the opponent.
