Backgammon is a game said to originate from Persia over 5,000 years ago making it one of the oldest known board games. It is played by 2 opposing players with different colored pieces. The goal is to move your pieces to the correct part of the board then remove them from the board before your opponent. In this web game you must move the white pieces to the bottom right quarter of the board. If you move on to a column contaning one of your opponents pieces their piece will be sent back to the start. Likewise they can do the same to you. You can not move on to a column containing 2 or more of your opponents pieces. Backgammon is a classic game of luck and skill.
