played some, but not much, Martian Backgammon and have also played a fair amount
of regular Backgammon.
recall correctly, the re-entry point is just a suggested/implied point where
your knocked-off pieces wait to come back onto the board. They should not be
shifted when the opponent gets more of their pieces off the
you own pieces stacking or being order dependant on re-entry, I have no idea.
Sorry. But I hope at least my first point helps out.
I tried to teach this to myself via the gamebook. And i tried playing it
with my LFGS manager. neither of us have ever played before and are not
familiar with it. Here isour question.....
When you step on a Singleton and place it at the Re-Entry Point; That is
the 5th squre of your Stockpile right? So where does the Re-Entry Singleton go
when all 5 spaces on the stockpile are taken? What if there is a peice in the
Re-Entry Square and your pawn LASt pawn pushes the nest down to that last
sqaure? Where do the Re entering pieces go? Or are we placing them
incorrectly? And do the Re Entry Pyramids have to be stacked in nests or
I have never ever played this before, neither had Ron (and I have never
played regulsr backgammon before). So It wa like the bilnd leading the blind.
Hopefully we weren;t too far off on how to play. I am sending links for two
pictures. One were Yellow had 4 comeplete nests on their stockpile and
"Xeno" had pyramids on the Re Entry. The next showing a New Yellow Pawn
pushing the 4 Yellow Nests down to the end. Where do the "Xeno" Re Entry
Pieces go? Or, are we playing totally incorrectly?
** I own only a Yellow solid stash (and 2 mixed)- So I am
showing a Backgammon with "Yellow VS Xeno Set". At the LFGS Ron has a set
of Ice Towers and we played a one solid color VS another solid color set
Thanks In Advance for putting me back on the straight path.
