Read a few articles about it that suggested it’s a bit ridiculous for competitive play, but basically fine for passing the time until the sweet release of death.

The impossibility of properly policing the extent to which players communicate with their partner. Being allowed to communicate some information but not other stuff is kind of fundamentally flawed for a really serious competitive game.


#15

backgammon though…what a game!


#16

King me


#17

oh right yeah. this is true. is a gentleman’s/gentlewoman’s game for sure.

Everyone I’ve ever spoken to about it swears blind that NO-ONE cheats :smiley:

good thing about backgammon is it’s actually loads of different games :thumbsup:

Dad tried to teach me once, but it seemed very complex, and also based around working with a partner which made it even more complex especially when someone knew what they were doing and someone didn’t.

In the future, instead of old people sat around playing bridge, do you we as old people will be sat around playing the PS24 or whatever console they’ll have then?
