Wanna Play Like the Dutch? Try This BG Variant

Continuing our trip around the world….

I like this backgammon variant and I hope you will too.

Is an interesting variation. Both players start with their checkers off the board.

They introduce their checkers on the opponents board depending on the number thy roll. For instance a 3-2 roll allows the player to place his checkers on the second and third lines.

You cannot take out your opponent’s blot until you do not have at least one checker on your home board. The reintroduction of the checkers from the bar goes the same way as for standard gammon.

OK? Check it out.
