Overview

Backgammon players have their own language when they talk about the game. To keep up, it is useful to know what terms like Ace Point, Boxcars, Close-out and Gin Point!

Backgammon is a two-player game, the object of which is to be the first player to move all of your checkers into the opponent's home board and then off the table. It is played on a board consisting of 24 narrow triangles-points, which alternate in color and are grouped into two, each having twelve triangles.

The halves are formed by the two opposing sides of the board, with a vertical band down the middle called the ‘bar,’ where the checkers are placed when hit.
