Backgammon

Backgammon is one of the oldest board games known, this is the stylish multiplayer version from Code This Lab published October 2018.

Gamplay of Backgammon

Backgammon is a two-player game in which each player has fifteen pieces, known traditionally as ‘men’ (short for ‘tablemen’) but often known as ‘checkers‘ in the US. These pieces move along twenty-four ‘points’ according to the roll of two dice. The objective of the game is to move the fifteen pieces around the board and be first to bear off, i.e. remove them from the board.

The game involves a combination of strategy and luck (from rolling dice). While the dice may determine the outcome of a single game, the better player will accumulate the better record over a series of many games. With each roll of the dice, players must choose from numerous options for moving their pieces and anticipate possible counter-moves by the opponent. The optional use of a doubling cube allows players to raise the stakes during the game.

It is considered the national game in many countries of the Eastern Mediterranean: Egypt, Turkey, Cyprus, Syria, Israel, Palestine, Lebanon and Greece. Like chess, the game has been studied with great interest by computer scientists. Owing to this research, backgammon software such as TD-Gammon has been developed that is capable of beating world-class human players.
