The player who bears off first wins the match.
If a player has not borne off any pieces by the time the winner had born off all 15 pieces, it is said to be a gammon, which doubles the score.
A triple game or backgammon occurs when the winning player has borne off all the pieces from the board yet the losing player has not removed a single piece from the board and at the same time, still has pieces on the opponent's home board or at the bar. The winning player gets three times the amount of the cube.
