I have an old version of this in a little briefcase-type case. It hasn't seen much action because I usually have too many kids vying for my attention to take the time to sit down and explain the rules or play this one. It did hit our table once and was fairly well received.

The goal would be to teach them the game well enough so they can play on their own.

Found at Half-Price Books for fifteen dollars. Not a super-bargain as thrifts go, but for a decent backgammon board well worth the discount. I got re-acquainted with the game while cleaning out my mother's house, and found a couple of smaller boards, one a very low-end travel set and one an entirely wooden set. I hadn't played since I was a kid and remembered nothing.

Anyways, it was nice to find a more substantially sized board with nice bits for a good price.



I got my younger daughter (11) to play with me twice so far. My wife looked at it and shuddered. She apparently had enough of a sour experience playing with her dad as a kid that she doesn't even like looking at it.

Found a really nice travel leather case version for 5.00 with metal clasps for closing, Nothing is missing and all the chips and dice are still in shrink. Even the rule book is mint.

EDIT: One of the Bakelite chips was chipped. I glued it back together.

The rule book isn't the one that came with the game. It looks like someone printed out a How to Play from the internet it was dated 2000.

Interesting little Crisloid magnetic travel set. Looks just like the big sets, but is very small. Don't think the pieces are bakelite so I'm guessing it's from the 70's. $3.99 @ Savers

$2 bought it just for the pieces to repurpose them in abstract games. This one had white and blue pieces which I don't see often. The sets I usually run across are white and brown.

I went to my favorite thrift store yesterday and their game pickings were pretty slim - came away with a mini copy of Chinese checkers, one of those Cracker Barrel golf tee games, and some decorative word dice. All good for parts.

So later I was farting around downtown and happened across a thrift store that I hadn't previously known about. HOLY VINTAGE GAMES BATMAN! Though sadly I bought out their entire stock of games for the century so I likely won't be back.

Anyway, got this copy of Backgammon published by Selchow and Reighter, all wooden bits and dice. Sadly missing a white marker.



Edit: forgot to add this was $1.

Hello gelati!



 4   Connect Four x2 NEW!
 7   Backgammon x2
 4   The Game of Authors x3

Flea market week, as we attended two of them. At the first, I picked up a 50-ish year old backgammon set in a little brown-and-tan briefcase with (faux-?)brass closures. When the lady mentioned the age, I thought she was hiking the price up, then when I asked she said: "I have no idea, I'm selling it for my brother. Give me one euro and it's yours." Then she threw in the travel edition of Connect 4 for free.
Brother 0:2 Tommy

We've started a family game night on Fridays. That kind of shared fun is a good salve for the wee frustrations that can creep into family life.

Lots starting up/continuing on VASSAL and yucata. I watched video tutorials for both El Grande and Pax Porfiriana. I am very excited to return to meatier gaming.

I'm still way ahead of my target of playing at least one game per day on average this year. This is largely due to the fact my youngest daughter currently loves to play games, which also explains the plethora of kids' titles on my lists these days.

Backgammon makes a very welcome return to my list. I've been teaching two of my children how to play. They don't offer much of a challenge as yet, but everyone has to start somewhere, right?

One new game this month, a wobbly ball-bouncing dexterity game that the kids got for Christmas.

I managed a total of 45 games spread across 17 different titles. That's one game every 16.5 hours, with each game being played an average of 2.65 times.

Games per day in March - 1.45
Games per day in 2017 - 1.28
Games per day since joining BGG - 1558 over 3182 days - 0.49

Backgammon is better when played properly: as a betting game. But if I'm betting real money, gimme Texas Hold 'Em any day.

Disqualified Mentions (i.e., games that fail to meet the requirements of an abstract strategy game, but that I still feel are worth a shout out here):

Backgammon - One of favorites games of all time.
Sleepers - Sort of like Havannah with special powers and hidden information. Great fun.
Micropul - An abstract of placement and area control but with hand management.
Kahuna - Another game that implements some hand management, but feels combinatorial in all other ways. A mean little game!
Torres - You can play the Master variant with open information, but we don't, and so this game ends up here.
