MATERIAL :

  • 1 board with 12 long triangles called "points" in each side
  • 2 times 15 checkers of two differents colors
  • 2 pairs of regular dice to play (on pair per player)

 

OBJECTIVE : to be the first player to out all his checkers from the board.

 

GAME START :

To start the game, each player throws a single die. The player who obtains the highest score starts to play. To do this, he must throws again the two dice.
If the results are identical, both players must launch their dice again, until they obtain different results.

The initial position of checkers differs from that of backgammon. The 15 checkers of each player are placed on the first case at the opposite of the output (see diagram on next page).
