|From Want To Play A Game?|
Backgammon is a board game for two players in which the playing pieces are moved according to the roll of dice. The history of Backgammon goes back approximately 5,000 years.
And while there is luck involved, there is also a degree of skill.
My father taught me how to play "gammon" as he calls it, around the pool when I was about Ella's age. His first rule? You are not playing a game, you are playing an "opponent" and you should be aware before the pieces are placed and the first die is thrown, what your strategy will for playing that person.
Thanks Dad, your advice has served me well as a life lesson.
Backgammon, wanna play?
