Quick Look: Backgammon Live plays exactly the same as you would with the traditional board. You can play Live, Local or against the Roku. The object of the game is move all your checkers into your own home board and then bear them off. The first player to bear off all of their checkers wins the game. The backgammon link above gives detailed information and strategies for playing the game.
