The Ancient game of backgammon is one of the oldest board games that we know of. Early versions of the game have been discovered in the ruins of Pompei and buried with the ancient Pharaohs.
Over the years backgammon has undergone many modifications to become the game that we know and love today. With a family of variants, backgammon is played in countries across the world.
While as with any board game luck and chance can play a defining roll, backgammon is a game of strategy and skill. The playing pieces are moved according to the roll of a die. It is a contest between 2 players, who race to remove all of their pieces from the board.
