by J. Du C. Vere Molyneux

Whether you're looking for a pleasant family pastime or a competitive gambling game, backgammon can supply the answer. 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. BEGINNING BACKGAMMON, as its title suggests, is intended for the complete beginner at backgammon. 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.
