Very simple to learn the rules, but it takes a lot of practice to play at a good level, especially with the cube.

Timeless classic. More strategy than you'll probably ever grasp, world tournaments, international and cross-cultural playability. If only every game were so slick!

An "all-time" classic (literally)! How can you not love Backgammon? Still popular across the world after a lifespan that even Hasbro can only dream of.

Favorite game of all time, mostly because of nostalgic reasons. My sister and I figured out basic strategy on our own by playing countless games on a tiny magnetic board in the back seat of the (nasty) Skylark.

Cool. Classic. Won a lot of money playing roommates in college. I'd always be up for a game.

Café Race is a race game set in a business office. The players take the role of office workers going upstairs to the first floor to get a cup of coffee who then improvise a race while they are going back downstairs… with a cup full of coffee.

A classic play anywhere game - it can be either totally light or devilously serious. It is a game I will always play and have always enjoyed. I think I always will as well.

The more I study backgammon the more I appreciate its depth.
I prefer to play with the doubling cube as it adds an additional level of skill, rewards good decision making and speeds up play.

Classic!

THE classic probability-based game, one that I've never been as good at as I would like. There's fun here for the casual player, yet still plenty to interest the expert. Like all dice games there's the possibility of winning on a 'lucky roll', but good players make their own luck. Simple rules and you can play in 10 minutes. I won't play for money on principle, so I don't usually need the doubling cube, but it can add interest to a series of games played to a point total. Among the best abstracts around.

I started playing BG about 5 years ago professionally (read for money), but these days I don't get around to the regular games anymore, though I still play in the occasional money tournament. Alot of people relegate this game to the 50% luck / 50% skill area, but I know from experience it is 100% skill unless the two players are exactly equal in skill.

My favorite game. A very intelligent friend of mine once said that he didn't like it because the person who rolled the most double sixes always won. I suggested that we play for money...

[countless plays] I consider this my all-time favorite and would like to play every day. I firmly reject the gamblers' innovation of the doubling cube, which I feel totally distorts the nature of the game.

I'd sooner drink out of a mud puddle than play a game of Chess. If you're like me, Backgammon might be for you. Described in a strategy book as "the cruelest game" Backgammon is a classic all the way around, but expect it to break your heart many times before you get the hang of it. Some complain about the dice factor, but lucky rolls alone won't win you lots of games over the long run with an experienced player. Best played over a series of games to a match point; learning how to use the doubling cube to best effect is what seperates beginners from intermediate players in those situations.

A cool classic that is always a nerve-wracking race between two fairly evenly-matched players. A good betting game. A world classic, with many interesting variations.

Classic game of implied risk and calculation. Great betting game. Just wish more people would play with me. Only worthwhile with the doubling cube.
