INTRODUCTION

WHAT IS BACKGAMMON?

BACKGAMMON IS ONE OF THE oldest games known to man, even predatingchess.Backgammonisplayedbytwoplayers.Theplayers have a set number of pieces on a board and must move them depending on the roll of a dice. The aim of the game is to be the first player to remove all of their pieces from the board.

As the moves are dependent on the roll of a dice, there is some luck to the game, but there is strategy too. Over the course of many games, the more experienced player will win more games than the novice player.

HISTORY

The very first backgammon board was thought to have been found in Iran, the board dates to around 3000BC. The board featured a snake coil design.
