Gamão Online

Backgammon Online is an electronic version of the Backgammon board game, which is one of the oldest board games in the world. The main objective of the game is to move all your pieces from the board out before your opponent does.

In this version, you will be able to play completely online to play against real opponents from all over the world!

The board is divided into four quadrants, called "tables", numbered from 1 to 24. Each table has 6 points, totaling 24 points on the board.

At the start of the game, each player places their 15 pieces at specific points on the board. The player using the white pieces starts on the right side of the board, while the player with the black pieces starts on the left side.

The game starts with players rolling one die each. Whoever gets the highest number starts playing. Players then alternate their moves, rolling two dice and moving their pieces according to the numbers obtained.

Players can move their pieces towards the end table and eventually off the board. The object is to move all 15 pieces out before your opponent does.

Pieces can be moved according to the numbers on the rolled dice. For example, if a player rolls a 3 and a 5, he can move one piece three points and another piece five points, or move a single piece eight points.

  • A point can only contain a player's own pieces or at most one opponent's piece. If a point contains only one opponent's piece, it is called a "block" and cannot be occupied by the player.
  • If a player moves a piece to an opponent's blocked point, the opponent's piece is captured and placed on the bar. To release a captured piece, the player must move it back to the board, to an open point in the opponent's quadrant.
  • When a player has all of his pieces in his final quadrant, he can begin to "bear-off", i.e. move the pieces off the board. This is done according to the numbers on the dice, moving pieces from the corresponding points. If a move exceeds the required number, the player must move a piece from a lower point.
  • The first player to move all of their pieces off the board is the winner.
