Categories:  Dice Games Traditional Games

Backgammon is regarded as the ultimate dice game. Despite the large number of possible combinations and randomness of the die rolls this is yet another game that the computer has managed to overtake humans. The fine judgement of when to use the doubling cube makes this more than just a race to get your men home.
