Backgammon Online - Online casino game

Backgammon is a board game that involved two players trying to move their 15 checkers across the backgammon board, according to the roll of two dice.

The objective of backgammon is to remove all 15 checkers from the board before your opponent does. This is done by first getting all of the checkers into your home board, and then removing all of your checkers according to the dice score. This stage of taking your checkers off of the board is called the bear-off. The winner of the game, according to backgammon rules, is the player that succeeds in bearing off all of his checkers first.

To start the game off, the starting player is decided. In order to decide which player begins first, each of the players throws one of the two dice. The player who rolls the higher number initiates the game.

If both players roll the same number, they will throw the dice again till the numbers differ. The backgammon player that starts the game uses the number shown on the dice to move his checker a related number of points.

Learning how to play backgammon is very easy, each player rolls a single dice. This determines both the player to go first. Both players roll again if equal numbers come up, until they roll different numbers. The highest number moves first. After the first roll, the players throw both dice and alternate turns. How many points (or pips) a player can move his stones, is indicated by the roll of the dice. Stones are always moved forward, to a lower-numbered point. A stone can only be moved to an open point (a point not occupied by two opposing stones).

The two dice constitute separate moves. For example, if we want to know how to play backgammon's dice indicating 5 and 3, it is the move of one stone five spaces and another stone three spaces, the player may also move the one stone eight spaces to an open point, but only if the intermediate point (either three or five spaces from the starting point) is open also. A player who rolls doubles plays the numbers twice. A roll of 6 and 6 means that the player has four sixes, he may move any combination of stones he wants to complete this move. Player must use all his numbers if legally possible. When only one number can be played, the player must play that number. A player must play the higher number If either one can be played, but not both. A player loses his turn when either number can't be used.
