Backgammon is usually played in sets, since the duration of each game is short. Each player moves the checkers according to the dice, and tires to get to his home board, which are at the opposite side of which he began. Only when he has delivered all his checkers over to his home board can he begin to remove the pieces from the board. If a player has no legal moves after rolling the dice because all his checkers are blocked by enemy checkers, he must forfeit his turn. However, he must try to play both dice, if possible. If he has only one possible move with only one of the dice, then he must play that move and forfeit the use of the other dice.
