BG 777 - Backgammon Gambling

Backgammon is one of the most popular games that has hit the gambling scene in a long time. While there may be those that say that it is outdated and dull, and will run off to the slot machines, backgammon will always have its followers. The game is so simple to learn, yet so intelligent in the way that it is played, that there is no hope that it will ever fully pass away. In fact, it only seems to be growing ever more popular. A few words on the history of this great game may be in order.

Backgammon is the oldest recorded game in the world and is even older than chess. Until recently, that game was thought to have emanated from ancient Egypt, Sumeria and Mesopotamia. However, with the birth of the new era of gaming, archaeological studies have shown that backgammon was indeed far older than those games that were played there, and is far older than anyone had initially thought. It originates from Afghanistan on the borders of today's Iran. It is said that a counselor to the king invented the game so that his highness would be amused. Whatever may be the truth of this legend, there is no doubting the ancestry of this great game.
