How To Play Backgammon
After rolling the dice, move your checkers in a clockwise direction according to the number shown on the dice. If you roll doubles, you can make four moves all by the same number. You can knock opponent pieces off and reset its position by occupying the same triangle with your piece. Once you have moved all your pieces through the triangles and around the board to reach the lower or upper quadrant, you may start bearing off the pieces. The first player to remove all pieces from the board wins!
- Single pieces allow opponents to knock it off, so try to pair up checkers on the same triangle.
- Leave some pieces at home strategically
- Knocked off pieces will have a hard time coming back on board if you occupy many spots or triangles with two or more pieces.
- If you are in a dilemma of which piece to move, always move the one that can knock off opponent pieces.
