The combination of skill and luck that is at the heart of the game enables players of differing skill and aptitude to play together without boredom or one-sided results.

In simple language and clear, easy-to-follow illustrations, it introduces this exciting, popular game at all its levels. Covering the basic rules of the game, elementary tactics; and overall strategy (including dice probabilities and gambling aspects such as the right use of the "doubling cube"), BEGINNING BACKGAMMON includes sample games used to show backgammon theories in practice. Alternative games that can be played on the backgammon board are also included.
