Summer Backgammon

Take a trip to the backgammon pool this summer with a game of Summer Backgammon! Choose a pool float or beach ball to play your way to victory in this Summer themed board game!

Summer Backgammon is played exactly like your favorite classic board game backgammon, just with a fun Summer theme! Move the floats or balls (you get to choose in the options!) around the board according to the dice roll. You may move your backgammon pieces into any spot occupied by your checker(s), empty, or with just one opponent's checker. This last option is a great strategic move, knocking the opponent's piece off the board and they must roll to get it back on, using one of the next die rolls for this move. Once all of your checkers are in your home quadrant (upper right if you are playing the computer), you may start to bear them off the board. Bear all your pieces off the summer backgammon board before your opponent does so, and you win!

Summer Backgammon Strategy

  • Try to block your home spaces with two or more backgammon beach balls or floats.
  • Knock the other player off the backgammon board by landing in a space occupied by only one of their floatation devices.
  • Don't allow the opponent to get back on the board because you are blocking all the spaces!
  • Get lots of free turns and probably win!
