backgammon : a board game played with dice and counters in which players try to be the first to gather their pieces into one corner and then systematically remove them from the board (Backgammon, 2015) [1]blank.gifWebster | Free | OneLook | Visuwords
Backgammon is one of the oldest board games for two players. The playing pieces are moved according to the roll of dice, and players win by removing all of their pieces from the board. There are many variants of backgammon, most of which share common traits. Backgammon is a member of the tables family, one of the oldest classes of board games in the world. Although luck is involved and factors into the outcome, strategy plays a more important role in the long run. With each roll of the dice, players must choose from numerous options for moving their checkers and anticipate possible counter-moves by the opponent. Players may raise the stakes during the game. There is an established repertoire of common tactics and occurrences. (Backgammon , 2015) [2]blank.gif Wikipedia
