Backgammon is not a game of luck as many perceive, but rather, a strategic visual game of war; in many ways it is as difficult to master as chess.
Although an element of luck is involved, a skilled backgammon player uses intuition, calculations, creativity and psychology to beat the opponent.
The goal in backgamon online is to move all own checkers into the home board and then bear them off (i.e. remove them from the backgammon board). The first backgammon player to remove all of his checkers wins the backgammon game.
The Help section of Backgammon Live Online presents rules and strategies for backgammon. You will learn the best ways to play your opening rolls, how to Build a Blockade, how to Establish Anchors, how to Optimize Distribution of Checkers and how to Reduce 'Good' Rolls for the Opponent.
The backgammon strategies section describes When to Expose Checkers vs. When to Consolidate Them and how to make a decision When to Hit or not to Hit opponent's backgammon checker.
Although backgammon is a very old game, it still continues to fascinate its numerous fans around the globe. It is no wonder that nowadays there are many spellings and acronyms of the game's name. Backgammon can be referred to as: gammon, backgamon and even baggamon, baggammon and bagamon and bagammon! In Greece and Turkey, backgammon is known as tavla. In Iran and Russia, they call backgammon nardi.
If backgammon were strictly a game of chance, players would only be expected to win on average just about one half of their games. Yet, just like in chess, stronger backgammon players consistently win games against backgammon newbies. There is a lot more skill required in backgammon than just rolling the dice and mindlessly racing checkers around the board!

Ratings and Reviews
This backgammon live is awesome. Now I can play with real people around the world on my phone without leaving the house. It's also easy to login in with FB account or other SM account. This game is really good for beginners like me. You gotta practice your skill and get improved. Well done!
Graphic is good and the controls are responsive and are large enough for someone with hammer fingers (like me) to operate. My favorite overall fair certified Backgammon game. It's almost perfect. I love the way you can switch tables and play with different players.
Not a skilled backgammon player but still find a way to compete and got interesting in making new friends. It’s super with wifi or not. Need little calculations to be a great player.
