  • Backgammon is one of the oldest board games for two players. The playing pieces are moved according to the roll of dice, and a player wins by removing all of his pieces from the board before his opponent. There are many variants of backgammon, most of which share common traits. Backgammon is a member of the tables family, one of the oldest classes of board games in the world. Although luck is involved and factors into the outcome, strategy plays a more important role in the long run.[1] With each roll of the dice, players must choose from numerous options for moving their checkers and anticipate possible counter-moves by the opponent. In variants that originate from early 20th century New York, players may raise the stakes during the game. There is an established repertoire of common tactics and occurrences. Like chess, backgammon has been studied with great interest by computer scientists. Owing to this research, backgammon software has been developed capable of beating world-class human players.

Many games of Backgammon have more than 5 checkers on a point, but this game only has 5 peg holes for each point. It makes it difficult to play. Ide suggest finding a "Manget Checker" Backgammon to play while travelling in a car. If your not worried about checkers moving(while in a vehicle), try looking for a Travel Sized Backgammon set.

The pieces stick like crazy in the board! It is near impossible to work some of them out. By the time we're done with a game my fingers are throbbing. I only hope it loosens up with time but so far it's just as snug as they day we bought it. Everything else about the game is fine. The zipper case, the board, etc. are completely fine, but those holes are just too tight for those metal pieces!

I could see this as being a great game board in a moving vehicle like a car or RV but for an airplane, I would rather have a magnetic one. It's a good board and very compact which is part of the problem, its too compact for my big hands.
