Overview
Backgammon is a translation of the board game to the Odyssey². The object of the game is to move all checkers off the board. The first player to do so wins. For technical reasons the board is drawn with parallel lines instead of triangles. Points are scored in the following way: a straight win is awarded with 1 point. A "gammon" is awarded with 2 points and a "backgammon" with 2 points. Players can challenge the opponent for doubling and redoubling the amount of points won. The game can be played using the electronic dice in game or using hand dice.
