Backgammon for Seniors and Beginners
Backgammon is a really fun game that’s enjoyed by millions of people all over the world. The earliest record of backgammon dates to 17th century England, where it was created by adopting much of its play from the 16th century “game of Irish”. Similar style board games are believed to date back 5,000 years to the Mesopotamia and Persia regions of Asia. Backgammon is a two-player game that involves much strategy, although luck does come into play with the roll of the dice. While confusing to any beginner, backgammon is relatively easy to play once you know the rules of movement.
