Backgammon is a common casino game that's played between two players. The game is played on a board with each player starting out with 15 checkers that move between 24 triangles. The game also involves the rolling of two dice.


History


Backgammon is among the first board games ever invented, having been created about five thousand years ago in Mesopotamia and Persia. The game has garnered a lot of interest from players and scientists alike. Today, the game is still wildly popular in the Middle East and around the world.

Odds of a direct roll of a certain number such as 4 are 30.55%
