Backgammon is one of the most popular and enduring of all board games and is currently

struggle or an absorbing and satisfying intellectual pursuit.

this fascinating game and will be ideal for beginners, enthusiasts and serious addicts.
The rules are fully explained, game strategies examined and for more advanced players the
authors include a selection of match situations to test and challenge the brain. Over 350
board diagrams illustrate the text, so allowing the book to be easily understood without
reference to a board, and making this the ideal companion for all backgammon players.
