Hi my name is Charles Challey, I'm here to tell you how to setup a backgammon board. So let's just say that you have your board setup like this, this is a pretty nice one and this I'll be the white player and here we'll have the black player. So I'll start with my pieces, you start with two on the far right side. You then go to the far left side and you put five. You then go across and 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 you put 3 and the last 5 you put on the first space here. The good news about backgammon is that once you've done this, the other side mirrors it.Now that you've got your dice and your opponent has their dice and you set your doubling cube, you're ready to play.
