The rules that came with our Backgammon game are horrible! The pictures are poor and the words with misspellings, and just a plain BAD translation of the original rules.yuk

Where can I get a nice pdf copy of rules for this that I can print out and throw away our "China" rules. I found a couple of sites with rules, but they wouldn't "print" nicely.

Thanks!

Jim

Well, it's not a pdf, but if you're willing to do a bit of copy and pasting, I think you could make a nice document out of these excellent rules.

EDIT: if you really must have a ready-made pdf, it looks like Hasbro (of all companies) has a single sheet of rules posted to its website. No doubling cube rules, though. Bummer.

What do you mean by Double Cube rules? They mentioned "Doubles" in the rules... OR are you talking about a "Doubling Cube"?

Sorry. Typo. That should have been "doubling," as in the doubling cube.
