Backgammon is a game for two players, played on a board consisting of twenty-four narrow triangles called points.
To play backgammon the following equipment is used:
1 backgammon board
30 Checkers - 15 of one color and 15 of another.
2 six-sided dice
2 dice cups for rolling the dice
1 six-sided doubling cube with the numbers 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, and 64 on the 6 faces
Unlike chess it doesn�t matter which color checkers the players use as either player has the opportunity to make the first move.
