In some countries of southern Europe and the Middle East, it is a way of life. A typical game of backgammon lasts 6-8 minutes if it is it?or Gioul, and double that if it is Plakoto or Moultezim. These are the fastest, most absorbing minutes in a player lifetime. The game moves in lightning speed and requires total concentration. The mixture of chance and skill are perfectly balanced in itthe other games leaning heavier on skill. There is hardly a moment of boredom when you play Backgammon. Even when the game seems hopelessly lost, there is still a finite probability of a turnaround. The suspense is always there, the tension is never ending. What more would you want for an evening ofelaxation?This book is written to fill a voidhe almost total absence of information on backgammon games, other than basic itusually called backgammon in the West.
