Update coming soon
Over the last eighteen months the UKBGF has taken up the project of drafting a comprehensive set of Rules for tournament backgammon. I studied various existing sets of rules from around the world and eventually decided to base our version on the Danish Backgammon Federation (DBgF) rules. Our current version of the Rules is available to view on the UKBGF website.
From the outset we decided to publish the Rules openly and advertise the fact globally in order to receive as much comprehensive review, comment, criticism and feedback as possible. Our current version of the Rules, Edition 1.2, took into account all of the feedback received following the publication of Edition 1.1.
However, the Rules are a living work always open to improvement over time, as backgammon itself evolves and ideas change. Since Edition 1.2 of the Rules was published in September 2014, we have received even more feedback and the Rules are going to be further updated in the near future.
