Ridley's Backgammon Set
Backgammon is 5000 years old and as such has had many forms! This Ridley's version has given backgammon a revamp with bright, bold colours and given it a modern day games room freshen up.
If you're not familiar with Backgammon then it's a very addictive game of skill, tactics, luck and cunning! All the attributes that culminate to create a fun and infuriating game for everyone.
The aim of the game is simple; move all your checkers from the board by rolling the dice. You set your 15 checkers out exactly opposite of your opponent and then take it in turns to work your checkers anti-clockwise around the board towards your home board - you may not move onto a point with two or more opposing checkers on.
Fear not there are comprehensive instructions with in the board game but once you've got it that's it, game on!
Interestingly Backgammon is a Persian game and the 30 checkers represent each day of the week while the 24 'points' represent the hours in the day. Impressive for 5000 years old.
