Backgammon - Pieces Distribution
The game board has 2 sets of 12 triangles called points. Sets of points are joined by one of the edges and numbered from 1 to 24, by the shape of a horseshoe.
Put two pieces on point 24, three on point 8 and five pieces on points 13 and 6 of each player. The two players move the pieces in different directions, from point 24 to point 1.
The Game Rules
Every player roll the dice and who rolls bigest dice begins the game.
After they roll the dice players must move the pieces according to the numbers on the dice.
For example if a player rolls 6-3 then he has to move two pieces, with 6 points and 3 points forward.
If a player throws a double (same number on both dices), then he moves 2 times for each dice. If a player can't move because of the position of the pieces the he gives his turn to the other player.
A piece can be moved on an unoccupied or occupied only of parts of the same kind. It can move on a point occupied by the other player only if it is occupied by a single piece. In this case the opponent's piece is 'eaten' and it's removed on the edge of the board.
The pieces 'eaten' can be returned to the game throw the house of the other player. A player can not move other pieces until all the pieces 'eaten' are not placed back in the game.
When a player has all the pieces in the house he can start to pull out of them. A roll of 1 and 3, for example removes a piece from point 1 and 3. If a player rolls 6-5 and he hasn't any pieces at 6 he can bring two pieces of 5.
If a player removes all pieces he wins the game.
ATTENTION! The player who does not move in time (pay attention to the game timeline) loses the game!
