The chat, the menu etc. are to the right of the backgammon board

Checker Movement

By default, your checkers move counterclockwise around the board - see red arrow below.

There are two ways to move checkers:
  • Move by dragging checkers from source to destination
    You can 'grab' and move a checker from its source pip to its destination. While moving the checker, the green highlights show possible destination pips.
  • Fast move by touch
    Suppose you have a 6:2 roll of the dice. If you touch a checker that can jump both 6 and 2 positions, the first touch would make it jump 6 positions first. The second touch would make it jump 2 positions.
