SHORT HISTORY ABOUT BACKGAMMONBackgammon is without doubt one of the oldest known board games. Its history can be traced back nearly 5,000 years to archaeological discoveries in the Middle East. It is a two player game where each player has fifteen pieces (checkers) which move between twenty-four triangles (points) according to the roll of two dice. The objective of the game is to be first to bear off, i.e. move all fifteen checkers off the board. Backgammon is a member of the table family, one of the most oldest classes of board games. Backgammon involves a combination of strategy and luck (from rolling dice). Whilst the dice may determine the outcome of a single game, the better player will accumulate the better record over series of many games, somewhat like poker. With each roll of the dice, players must choose from numerous options for moving their checkers and anticipate conceivable counter-moves by the opponent. The optional use of a doubling cube allows players to raise the stakes during the game. Backgammon is a popular board game all over the world especially country’s like, Armenia, Unites States, Greece, Western Europe, East Asia, Egypt, Turkey, Mesopotamia (Modern Iraq) and many more. You will have numerous fun playing this game. ARMENIA Backgammon or nardi (Armenian: նարդի) is very popular among Armenias. The word is derived from Persian word nard (Persian: نرد). There are two games of nardi commonly played:Short nardi: Set-up and rules the same as backgammon. Long nardi: A game which starts with all fifteen checkers placed in one line-on 24-point and on 11-point. The two players move their checkers in opposing directions, from the 24-point towards the 1-point, or home board. In long nardi one checker by itself can block a point. There is no hitting in long nardi. The objective of the game is bearing all checkers off the board. There is no doubling cube.
