From The Complete Stories of Lewis Carroll:

CO-OPERATIVE BACKGAMMON

Mr. Lewis Carroll . . . takes this opportunity of giving his readers the rules for Co-operative Backgammon, which he thinks will prove a novel and interesting variety of the game. (1) Each player throws three dice: with two he moves for himself, and with the third for his adversary. (2) If no one of the three dice is available for the adversary, a player may use any two he likes; otherwise he is bound to leave, as third dice, one which will be available for the adversary.

The Times: March 6, 1894.

Indeed! It's a good trivia tidbit about Backgammon in any case!
