Publisher's Summary

Did you know backgammon is one of the oldest games ever invented - and it's even older than chess?

In this fascinating guide, you'll discover the 5,000-year history of backgammon - and how you can enjoy this popular and compelling game. You'll discover the uniquely geometric backgammon board, how to set up the pieces, and how to make your first moves.

As you increase your mastery of this ancient game, you'll learn a vast array of game concepts and winning tactics. You'll discover how to "hit" your opponents' pieces and remove them from the board - forcing your opponent to start these pieces over from the beginning. You'll learn how to "bear-off" your own pieces from the board and prepare for a victory.

This audiobook even explains how gamblers use a doubling cube, a new twist US players added to the game in the 1920s, to raise the stakes!

Learn the Five basic backgammon strategies every player should know:

  • The Running Game
  • The Holding Game
  • The Priming Game
  • The Backgammon Blitz
  • The Back Game

You'll even learn additional rules for backgammon variants - and the pro tips you need to take your game to the next level!

Make your move today by downloading this audiobook and entering the intriguing world of backgammon - you'll be so glad you did!
