Backgammon uses 30 checkers, fifteen for each player. At the same time, the players have checkers of different colors, for example, dark and snow-white, yellowish and greenish, etc.
Dice (Zaras) are cubes with dots on them.The number of bones is two. If we talk about real losses, then excellent run-in bones are important here, the cost of which can reach up to 1000 rubles.
The game uses a doubling cube – this is a cube that indicates the bet of the game, and the numbers 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64 are indicated on the faces.
The game board for backgammon consists of 24 elongated triangles, which are called Points. They are numbered from 1 to 204.
The playing field is divided into four quarters, each having 6 points. Such quarters are called the house (points 6-1), the yard (points 12-7), the opponent’s house (points 24-19), the opponent’s yard (points 18-13). The house is divided with a courtyard bar – this is a special side that protrudes above the playing field.
Checkers move in different types of backgammon in different ways. But the movement is always subject to zarams, i.e. how much they show, so the checkers should move. At the same time, points on 2 dice are not summed up, but first they walk along the value of one bone, and later on the other.
If the same value fell out at the first and 2nd dawn (double), then the number of pts doubles.
Purpose Of The Game
The goal of the game will be to enter the house faster than the opponent and transfer the checkers, moving counterclockwise according to the number of points dropped.
There are 10 rules of the game in the world, but they are all divided into two huge types – these are long and short backgammon. And the main difference is that in small backgammon it is allowed to knock down the opponent’s checkers.
