One of the oldest and most popular board games and dice games is Backgammon. In front of you, you have a game table with 24 fields, on which each player has 15 game pieces each, which are distributed in the initial arrangement that is typical for Backgammon. Yours are the white game pieces and you have to play your pieces to the bottom right in a counter-clockwise direction. Your opponent is the computer that competes against you in two game modes (easy as well as hard). He has to play his pieces to the upper right in a clockwise fashion. With one click on "roll the dice", you can get started already, and then the dice fly. Now you can move your game pieces twice according to the number on the dice. In case of a pasch, meaning twice the same number on the dice, this calls for four movements. In order to move a piece, you have to just click on it. The possible fields for you to move your game piece to light up immediately. You have to just click on one and your game piece will move there right away. You can now beat individual stones of your opponent, with which he then has to start all over again. If he has two or more stones on a field, you may not enter it. You should therefore avoid letting your game pieces stand on your own, as they can be beaten in this case. It is recommended to cover as many fields as possible with two stones to make it harder for your opponent. Once you have moved all your stones to the bottom right, you can start to take them out of the game. In Backgammon, both the strategy as well as the luck of the dice will decide together. If you prefer an aggressive strategy and beat your opponent wherever you can, the luck of the dice must once again be on your side. Backgammon is a game of chance, where your skill also matters. Over time, you will get better at weighing the risks, assessing your opponent and consequently you will start to get better and better at playing the free web game. Have Fun!

Forerunners of today's Backgammon game can be traced back as far as antiquity. In ancient Egypt, similar games of dice were being played already. The dice game that the Romans played comes pretty close to the Backgammon of today. Even in the excavations of Pompeii, murals were found with games similar to Backgammon. The victory of Backgammon began during the Middle Ages at last. Nowadays, World Championships are even held in Backgammon, which have been taking place in Monte Carlo since 1979. Backgammon is one of the games of chance and is therefore not tolerated everywhere.
