The oldest and greatest of games, Backgammon has a long and very intriguing history - it has been known by many different names and variants for more than 5,000 years! While the game has seen its share of 'golden eras' its popularity has never waned in the nations around the Mediterranean. It is very common in Greece, and the neighbouring countries. In fact, in Greece the game is considered to be the "National Pastime", three variants are played, and one guesstimate from a Greek tournament director suggests that 90% of the population play the game!
