The Backgammon Board Setup

Before starting the game of backgammon, you need to set the board up. The backgammon board setup process is easy and fast, especially if you are someone who knows how to play the game. The other thing is that you can set up the backgammon board easily even if you have never played the game earlier, provided you have played checkers earlier.

The principle behind backgammon board setup is the same as that for checkers. Usually, the backside of the checkers board is what constitutes the backgammon board, and the pieces for one game can easily be used for the other. To start the game, you have to arrange the pieces in the designated areas. There are basically pieces in two colors for the two players, usually black and red. In case of ornate backgammon boards, the pieces may be silver or gold in color.

Once you have the backgammon board, setup the pieces in it according to the rules. If you do not know how to set up the pieces, you can ask your rival player. Otherwise, the best way is to just search the Internet. You will find a number of sites that will give you the process of setting up the backgammon board in easy to understand steps.

However, when you are playing the game online, you do not have to worry about the backgammon board setup routine.
