Detailed dream interpretation

Dreaming of a backgammon playing board symbolizes that you have many friends around you, but only a small number of true friends. If you win your game of backgammon, then it is likely the dream represents a balance of harmony and spiritual development within relationships in your life. If you are a gambler and you dream of playing backgammon, it could mean that you should take a break from your tumultuous lifestyle, or else there might be trouble coming your way. The game does not necessarily indicate financial gain, but rather problems with people in your life.

The dice used for a backgammon game have their own meaning. A die represents an organized life. Dreaming of casting the dice during a backgammon game means that somebody in your family may be having problems that you are unaware of. If you cast the dice in your dream and get a good combination of numbers, it suggests that you will have temporary luck. Seeing a die lets you know that in the near future you could experience a huge financial gain. It means that you are taking risks in your waking life and this is bound to work out well at some point. But it can also refer to a risky situation that you may need to avoid.

A backgammon game seen in your dream is an omen to avoid risky business. Your luck is changing all the time during this period of your life. To dream of many backgammon games all happening at once represents superficiality, showing that you may be treating some aspects of your life with neglect or indifference. If you are playing in a casino in your dream this indicates you have been playing with something serious in your life and you have been taking chances that you should consider carefully. The dream is a warning, so take it seriously.
