How to play backgammon with some strategies to help you win. Firstly the rules.http://www.historygamer.com/2011/01/27/backgammon-how-to-pla...
In the first video of the series, I cover the basic rules of play. It's not a hard game to learn. I also give an overview of the strategies that I'll be covering in detail later in the series.
However in this video I talk about the layout of the board - inner boards and outer boards etc, dice rolls, moving, hitting, bearing off and pips.
I complete the rules by introducing the cube and its significance in the game. In essence the cube is like a raise in poker, and I explain the scoring system of backgammon, and how you can use the cube to get more points out of a game.
The series will include sample games showing the holding game, attacking game, priming game, opening moves and dice roll probabilities you should commit to memory.
Hopefully this series (aimed at new players) can improve your game enough to beat casual players.
