SAC range of Backgammon sets and Backgammon pieces. Complimenting our range of chess products our series of SAC backgammon sets represent great value for money. Each is high in quality and carries the same standard of workmanship as all products carrying the SAC brand. Backgammon is a game of both skill and luck. Two people play with 15 stones, or pieces, each on a board consisting of 24 spaces or points. The checkers are moved according to dice rolls. Each player attempts to bring his stones home and bear them off before his opponent, blocking and hitting the opposing checkers during the endeavour. Backgammon is believed to have originated in Mesopotamia in the Persian empire or the present day Iran, Iraq, and Syria and it is the oldest known recorded game in history. The game was typically played on surfaces such as wood, using stones as markers, and dice made from bones, stones, wood or pottery and it can be traced back thousands of years BC to boardgames played by the Egyptians, Sumerians, Romans, and Persians.

The Doubling Cube - The doubling cube was believed to be introduced in New York in the 1920's by some unknown gambler which enhanced the element of skill in the game increasing its marketability, insuring its place as a popular pastime. The game was mostly limited to the upper class in private clubs although several introductory backgammon publications burst onto the scene. The rules were modified in 1931 in the U.S. to what generally governs the game today. There was somewhat of a decline in popularity during the depression and a light resurgence in the 1940's which saw a few more texts published although no real advances in skill. Interest decreased again during WWII.
