Has anyone ever seen the backgammon board from issue 15 of Dragon magazine? In the article with the rules, Tom Wham says that he designed this game to go on that board, yet at this point I can find nothing. Supposedly it was an insert in the magazine, yet it did not make it into the archives. I haven't seen a physical copy of the magazine. If anyone has this, a picture would be fabulous.

Yes, I do realize that any backgammon board will do. I'm just curious!

I exhausted all my internet search tricks, trying to impress you but to no avail.

I found several digital copies of Dragon #15, but none have the insert imaged. It actually isn't even mentioned in the table of contents. But there is a full page pic of Wormy playing on a small part of a dragon backgammon board.

Anyway, searching for this led to a lot of interesting background on Dave Trampier. A fun excursion into the past.

If you ever find a pic of it, please share!

Either of you ever find a copy?

Been searching as well - and the few copies of Dragon Mag 15 they had at Gen Con did not have the insert

Is this what you're looking for?

http://www.nobleknight.com/ProductDetailSearch.asp_Q_Product..._

Update: Sorry, No Backgammon insert.

Update: I think this one may have the insert: http://www.nobleknight.com/ProductDetail.asp_Q_ProductID_E_3..._
But it's $55, not $18!
