Backgammon Atributes

Pips are the number of dots on the dice.
Pip Count

The pip count is the number of spaces that all of the player’s checkers still need to move in order for all of them to be borne off. At the beginning of the game each player has a pip count of 167.


When the losing player has not borne off any men by the time the winner has finished bearing off, the winner receives twice the value of the doubling cube. This situation is referred to as a gammon.


A backgammon is a situation in which the winning player bears off all of the checkers while the opponent has not yet started to bear off, and has at least one checker in the winner’s home board or on the bar.


A chouette is a variant of backgammon which allows several players to play on a team against a single opponent.

The cube, also called the doubling cube, is a cube with one of the following numbers on each of its six sides: 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64. The cube is used for one player to offer the other to double the stakes of the game.

Holding game

A holding game is a backgammon game played using a defensive strategy.


To slot is to leave an unprotected checker on a point .

Own the Cube

The last player to accept the offer of doubling the stakes owns the cube.


To take is to accept an offer to double the stakes and get possession of the doubling cube


When a player is offered the cube and refuses it, it is called pass or fold. A player who is offered the cube and refuses it loses the game automatically


A die that lands badly is said to be “cocked” and both of the dice must be thrown again.
