    Backgammon
    Anyone here a fan of Backgammon? One of the worlds oldest surviving board games, donchaknow, and it's been a favorite of mine since a was a little boy. Luck and skill, hand in hand.

    With all of the mobility issues that I've had in the past couple of years, I've ended up spending a lot of time playing it online with countless people that I've never met in the real world. It's been fun learning new strategies by vying against folk from all over, and occasionally you can run into a good chat.

    Care to join? Shoot me a PM.

    My Dad taught me how to play when I was little. I will need a refresher game or two, but I enjoyed it. Let me know what platform you use etc.

    I never played that game, Chinese Checkers was my game.

    Backgammon sounds like a stuffed toilet pachi kaiju!

    I had this version:

    ^^^ Interested!

    The smoothest running site to play at these day, as far as I know, is http://www.safeharborgames.net/
    You need to install a wee bit of software to join in, but I've never found it to be invasive at all.

    Care for a match, @super77m? Same goes for the rest of yuz.
