Backgammon

Backgammon Rules

Making a Move

When it is your turn to move, click on the dice. You can move the pieces according to each number on the dice. For example, if you roll a 5 and a 2, you can move one piece 5 spaces and another piece 2 spaces. You can move the same piece both times as well.

You cannot move to spaces occupied by more than one of your opponent's pieces. You can move to an empty space, a space with your pieces on it, or a space with just one opponent piece.

The Bar

If you move to a space with one opponent's piece, that piece will move the "bar" at the center of the board. Bar pieces can then be moved (starting at the beginning) on the next turn.

Moving Pieces Off the Board

Once all of your pieces are in the last quarter of the board, you can begin to move pieces of the board. The first player with all of the pieces off the board wins!

This game should work on all platforms including safari and mobile (we hope, but make no guarantees).

Note: Don't play any game for too long and be sure to take plenty of breaks!
