Wood Backgammon Game


On a trip to Cairo several summers ago, I spent quite a bit of time in the city’s many cafes drinking super-sweet coffee and snacking on shwarma. I watched as pairs of men sat at tables playing backgammon--one of the oldest known board games, as I later found out. My host taught me the basics, and after a while, I could at least follow the men’s games at the cafe. Try your own hand at a game of both chance and skill with our wood-grain backgammon set. Also available in wood painted white and blue.
