Backgammon is a game of luck and skill that has been entertaining millions of people throughout the world for centuries. It is played by two people on a board consisting of 24 triangles called points. Each player has 15 checkers, which are moved according to the roll of the dice. The first player to bear off all of his checkers wins the game. The complete rules of Backgammon are available at Backgammon Galore.
