I'm watching "Sons of Anarchy," and in one episode, there are two Irishmen playing a game that appears to be a dexterity game played with Backgammon pieces on a chessboard. Does anyone know if this is a real game, and if so, what it is?

I've not seen that show. Did they have to flick one piece between two other pieces? I was taught that game as Pennies but I've heard it called Table Soccer/Rugby.

Not that I could tell. The game wasn't the focus of the scene, but the pieces were lined up in rows on the grid, and it sounded like they were trying to knock pieces off the board. There's a good chance this wasn't a real game, but I thought if anyone would know, it would be someone here.
