Day 3

Today’s picture is a game that you all probably have seen before, Backgammon (Also known as “Tabli”).

I’ve read a little bit about it and found that that is one of the oldest board games for two players, it’s probably 5000 years old and recent discoverments have shown that it’s very likely to come from Middle East.

Nowadays, this game is not very comercial anymore, as it can be found to play online for free.

I found this as an interesting subject to shoot at, because of all the different shapes and little details that you can see on the board.

We have had this game for so long, as my great-grand parents are from Syria, so I assume that playing tabli was a common tradition in our family.

Feel free to leave feedback and suggestions.

Pablo.
