Five Biggest Myths of Backgammone

1. That it is a game of luck, it really is a game of odds..

2.There is more then one right way to play, there is one way that is superior to all others.

3. That computer programs can not be relied on,there are many out there that are good.

4. That the dice on the line are rigged, it is just random.

5. If I play and practice I will be a great player, it might be essential to improve your game, but you will never be a great, or even really good player without study away from the board.


So forget the bad myths, and just have a good time playing.

Those are some crazy myths. I haven't played backgammon in so long, I forget when I played it the last time.

What I remember about backgammon is that it's a game of skill and luck.
The luck coming from what numbers appear with the roll of the dice.
The skill coming from your knowlege on the best moves to make from your dice rolls.

From what I recall, the last few times I played was online and I didn't fair too well.

Re: Five Biggest Myths of Backgammone

Backgammon is a game that I just never got into. I have played it a few times, but guess I just don't grasp the concept of the game.

Who all here plays backgammon. Give us your thoughts on this game.
