OK, we’ve done some talking about this before.
About how backgammon, or some form thereof, is maybe….5,000 years old.
That’s old dude.
When most people think about backgammon the first thing that comes to mind today is usually exciting tournaments organized by a series of online backgammon sites.
However, it seems likely that the association between the backgammon game, the game and probably dates back to the origin of backgammon thousands of years. We know from the records of the Roman game of tabula (considered one of the main ancestors of backgammon we know today), that the game was played for money and not for entertainment.
Of course, it is easy to understand how the use of dice in combination with the key tactics of the game have done good game is the ideal choice for those who want to bet on its outcome.
Before the advent of online backgammon, backgammon the greatest support for a popular game of chance came with the introduction of the doubling cube in the United States in 1920.
There is no need to use this cube when playing for fun, but when you play for money is seen as adding significantly to the tension and thus the interest of the party. For those who are not as familiar with the rules of backgammon, it is interesting to note that the duplication of the cube is very different from the current dice backgammon, both in appearance and function. The doubling cube is not numbered 1 to 6, but showing the numbers 2, 4, 8, 16, 32 and 64.
It is placed in a central position between the players and a player’s turn comes, they want to offer this cube to his opponent. To show that they provide the hub to the highest value and present it to another player.
If the cube is accepted undertake to play backgammon stakes increase, or forfeit the match to existing issues. Clearly, the decision to offer or reject the duplication of the cube depends on the estimate of a player’s chances of winning.
The introduction of online backgammon late twentieth century has brought a game that was already very popular among the gaming community to a new level of popularity.
The offer of the free download backgammon and creating new opportunities for many to learn to play backgammon, have attracted many new players.
The large sums that can win in backgammon tournaments, including players who do get to the semi-final was a big draw.
