What does it mean to double in backgammon?

Knowing that one who dies with numbers and 64 on it.

Doubling in backgammon is a strategic move in which a player offers to double the stakes of the game. The player who doubles is essentially betting that they will win the game, and the other player has the option to accept the double or resign from the game.

If the opponent accepts the double, the game continues at twice the original stake. If the opponent declines the double, they forfeit the game and lose at the original stake. The player who doubles can only do so at the start of their turn, before rolling the dice.

As for your comment about the numbers on a die, it’s unclear what you’re asking. Backgammon uses two dice with six sides each, numbered 1-6, so there are no numbers 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, or 64 on them.
