Backgammon Etiquette

These are general rules to follow while playing backgammon.

  1. The dice must be rolled on the player?s right hand side of the board.

  2. The dice must be rolled together and land flat in the board. They must be re-rolled if one of the dice land outside of the board or crooked in the board.

  3. The turn is not over until the player picks up their dice. The player may not roll until the other player has completed their move and picked up their dice.

  4. If a player rolls before their opponent picks up their dice, they may have to roll again at the discretion of their opponent.

  5. If there is a moved played that is not legal, either player may correct the play as long as the correction occurs before the next player rolls. Any errors not corrected before then, remain as played.
