WHY DON'T YOU?

... have a Backgammon party?!
It was cool enough for Slim Aarons in the 70's, and I can't seem to think of a more casually cool and classic way to pass the time...


With its rich history this time-honored traditional game is sure to elicit the competitive nature in all of your nearest and dearest- you might have to remind them that it's just a game...


throw in a few fun desserts, appetizers, and surely a well stocked bar, and you're in for some old fashioned fun all night.
If you really want to get into it, you could find a board thats perfectly suited to your tastes and color preferences. This is something you just might have forever. I love the almost air that comes out of the board when you open up the ones M has had in his family for a long time- you just get the feeling of all the wonderful memories many people have made over a few games...


If a board just isn't serious enough for you, maybe you want to dedicate a little space to the game? Oomph Online has the answer. That table just drips with class- while I just drip with envy. Its stunning...

I haven't played Backgammon in years. My parents use to have friends over to play all the time. Your post brings back great memories.
