Of all the gambling games out there, Backgammon is arguably the oldest. In fact, this game is estimated to be over 5,000 years old.
To win a game of Backgammon you're required to move all your checkers onto your own home board and then remove them from the playing field. The Backgammon board consists of 24 triangles, known as points. These triangles are different colours and they are grouped into 4 quadrants of 6. To begin, you simply setup your 15 checkers - these are usually black and white. 2 checkers go on the 24 point, 3 on the 8 point, 5 on the 13 point and 5 on the 6 point. Now roll the dice to start the game!
