About Backgammon

An ancient board game, believed to have originated in the Mesopotamian era, Backgammon is a game of wits and tricks. It was played on surfaces such as wood; stones were used as markers, and the dice were made from bones, stones, wood or clay. Similar to modern day Backgammon, the ancient Roman game was called 'Tabula' which was termed so because it was played on a table or a board. The oldest backgammon was found in the city of 'Shahr-i Sokhta' (burnt city); the game was believed to be about 200 years older than the one found in Mesopotamia. It consisted of sixty pieces and two die. Though it has fairly simple rules, this game is no child's play. The main objective is to try getting all your pieces past your opponent's. The pieces are scattered at first, and during the game may be blocked or captured by the opponent's pieces, making this game a tough one to win. The game begins with each player rolling one dice, the player that rolls the highest number starts by moving his pieces to the number on the dice already rolled. Later, players take turns to roll two die at the same time. Rules such as the Beaver rule, Jacoby rule, Crawford rule, and Automatic Double ensure an arresting and nail biting end. The five basic strategies to winning this game are the Running game, Priming game, Holding game, the Blitz, and the Backgame. Also played for money, Backgammon gamblers bet on which player would be the first to reach a specific score, a dollar value is assigned to each point. Though the backgammon is an ancient game, it continues to be popular even today.
