Period: n/a (Abstract) Map Size: n/a Note: Garden game. In the summer; in the shade with a cold drink. I used to work and socialise with a bunch of South Africans and I never beat any of them at Backgammon. It must be hugely popular down there and the general standard is subsequently higher. I also spent the Summer of `86 backbacking around Greece, sitting in Taverna after Taverna, playing what they call Tavli. Happy times!
