The Origin of Backgammon

Games of the Backgammon family have been played for thousands of years in all parts of the world and certainly during the Egyptian, Greek and Roman eras. The game may derive from the ancient Egyptian game of Senat, which was played on a set of 3 x 12 points with 3 x 6 sided dice. Popular in a variety of forms throughout history, backgammon was probably originally brought to England by men returning from the Crusades.

Like many games played for money, Backgammon was unpopular with the authorities in England for centuries and it wasn't until the reign of Elizabeth I that laws prohibiting the "playing of Tables in licensed establishments" were abolished. In the early seventeenth century, backgammon underwent a revival and swept across Europe. Thenceforth, backgammon remained the popular game that we know today.

There are different opinions regarding the derivation. Some people believe it derives from 'Baec', meaning back and 'Gamen', which means game. Others believe that it might have been derived from 'Back', which means little and 'Gammon', meaning battle.
