Day 25 - Backgammon

When a game withstands about 5,000 years, you know it's a good one. One of the oldest 2 player board games around, Backgammon is a classic among other such games as Chess and Go. I'm not going to try and delve into the rules for you today, but they are pretty basic. You roll the dice and move your pieces onto your side of the board and off. The first to get all of their pieces off the board wins. Your pieces can't occupy a space where your opponent has 2 or more of his pieces. If you land on an opponent's single piece, their piece is removed from the board and they have to get it back on the board from "the beginning." You can't start taking pieces off the board until you have all of your pieces on your side of the board. The game is a fantastic 2 player game that will continue to be a delight to all for centuries to come. If you are unfamiliar with Backgammon, check it out, I think you will enjoy it. I enjoyed myself tonight especially because I broke my loosing streak and won tonight. Thank you Backgammon. Lou is making a come BACK and the GAMMe is ON and that is How Lou Sees It.
