Game of the Day: Backgammon


On the last day of this holiday weekend, cozy up by the virtual fire with your family and play today's Game of the Day, Backgammon.

The simple goal of one of the oldest board games in the world is to remove all of your checkers from the board before your opponent.

At the beginning of each turn, you'll roll two dice. The numbers you roll determine the amount of spaces your checkers can move. For example, if you roll a four and a three, you must move one checker four points forward and another checker three points forward. Ultimately, part of the strategy depends on what checkers you decide to move.
