The layout of the backgammon board – 24 triangular shapes, on which each player spreads his fifteen checkers at the beginning of play. The goal of the game is to progress the checkers from their original places to the opposite side of the board. Once this is done, the checkers must be removed before the opposing player manages to get his checkers off the board. The first player to rid the board of all his checkers is the winner.
The players receive a different colored set of 15 checkers. The board is between the two players in such a way that a row of twelve horizontal triangles is in front each player and the point values are counted in descending order for each player in the opposite direction, the 24 point for one player is the 1 point for the opposing player.
The opening placement is in the following order:
- 2 checkers on the 24 point
- 3 checkers on the 8 point
- 5 checkers on the 13 point
- 5 checkers on the 6 point
Each player receives two dice, which they will roll and the higher value determines who will have the fist turn. Each roll is done with both dice and progress of the checkers is done according to the value of each die. If a player rolls a three and a four, each value must be applied to the checkers individually.
Each player has a home board, which is the area with the lowest point on the board and where he wants to move all his men as quickly as possible. When all of the checkers are on the home board, the player can start taking them off the board.
