    Greg - it's pretty easy.  Just roll two dice, and you can move one piece the number of spaces on one die, and another the number on the second die.  Or, you can move one piece both number of spaces.  If the other guy has one piece by itself, it's a good idea to land your own piece there because it sends that piece to the jail in the middle, forcing it to make the whole trip around the board again.

    There are some lucky rolls (getting doubles gives you 4 moves), but if you don't carefully select which pieces move and where you might not do very well.

    If you can do a raid in Everquest I think you'll find backgammon as easy as opening the lid on a pizza box.

    1. Tourney tree up. (We'll be playing single matches for the first tourney so that the new players can get a feel for the game. Subsequent tourneys will use the doubling cube for point match series.)

    2. I will be scheduling two exhibition games, matching a skilled player with a new player - the skilled player should teach the new player the ropes.

    Games are as follows, so check your emails / gamesbyemail.com account in the coming few days:

    Lynsey vs Rosie
    Sean vs Greg

    3. If anyone else other than the five people listed in this thread would like to play, let me know and I'll expand the tourney tree. @tazweiss @mrpops09_CMOD_ ;

    Alright, I think there's some confusion - the links I post above aren't the games, they're the spectator URLs in case people want to watch them.

    You should receive an email saying it's your turn to play, but if you don't receive that, just login at gamesbyemail.com, then click on "My turns" it should show the games and they should be playable.

    your white piece which is off the board needs to go back into play first, you place this in the 4 (next to your lone white chip) on my right side of the board

    Gammon tip:

    # Whenever a piece is alone, an enemy piece can land on it and capture it, whereupon it sits in "jail" in the center.

    # All pieces in jail must be freed first before any other pieces can move. A piece is freed simply by starting it from the beginning again and putting it back on the board.

    # Try to defend your pieces by grouping them together on the same diamond. Enemy pieces can't land where there are two or more pieces sitting together.

    Don't worry about him. He likes to issue propaganda in hopes of demoralizing his opponents (much of which is hilarious, so that's a good thing). He also failed to mention the winning streak of 4 games I had after which he crawled shirtless and pantsless into the neighbouring field with arms raised to the sky, pleading for a comeback victory.

    I've figured out the problem as to why the game isn't sending out emails at first:

    Since I'm setting the game up, the system assumes I will make the first move, and so it doesn't send out any email. However, after someone logs in and makes the first move, emails get regularly sent. So keep that in mind from here on in when we start games.
