Just started playing backgammon and have no idea what people you are playing are saying half the time? Been playing backgammon for awhile but still get stuck by some experienced player’s mastery of backgammon jargon? Just want to have a few more good sayings at the local chouette?
Welcome to the world’s largest backgammon dictionary. This backgammon glossary was the best and biggest I could come up with after playing for a few years and scouring books and websites for the meanings to every backgammon word and saying you will come across.
For every word I have stated the definition as well as how it might be used in a sentence. Another great feature is that all of the words are cross-referenced and hyper linked to help you quickly find the meaning of every term. If you are looking for a particular backgammon term just click on the letter below and scroll down until you find it.
If I am missing or misrepresenting any backgammon related terms or you would like to submit your own, feel free to Email me and I will gladly add it to the ever growing backgammon dictionary (381 backgammon terms and counting!) here at our “contact us“ page.
