Backgammon - Board Game

(all affiliate links have been removed from this page; thanks for understanding) Backgammon is said to be the oldest game in recorded history. Its origin stems from a version of this board game that was first played about 5,000 years ago. Essentially backgammon is a race to see who takes off all of his checkers first. However, the shortest distance between two points is not always a straight line....

This game is a great alternative to watching TV. It is straight-forward to learn but can get increasingly complex. The use of simple maths in the board game makes it particularly suitable for school children.

There are also online and electronic versions to tackle once the basics have been mastered.
