Backgammon is a game with simple
rules, but one that can take years to master. It is a game that has a
unique combination of skill and luck, such that even a novice could
beat a world champion in one game. Of course over a series of games
luck should “even out” and eventually the more skilful player should
win …… but not always!
Backgammon is also an ancient game. Gaming boards and tokens similar
to, if not the same as, modern day backgammon boards have been found to
date back thousands of years before Christ. Backgammon boards have
been found in Tutankhamen’s tomb in the Nile Valley and some from
Enkomi in Cyprus dated back to 1500 BC.
