Backgammon is a two-player board game played on a board with 24 points, or triangles. Each player has 15 checkers, which they move around the board based on the roll of two dice. The objective is to move all of one's checkers into one's own home board and then remove them from the board before one's opponent does the same. The game combines strategy and luck, and there are rules governing the movement of the checkers. Backgammon has been played for thousands of years and is enjoyed by players of all ages and skill levels around the world.
