Backgammon games and strategies

£16.99 GBP

This book is written to fill a void - the almost total absence of information on backgammon games, other than basic "Hit" - usually called backgammon in the West. The authors, Basil and Nicolaos Tzannes, find it incredible that Gioul, Plakato and Moultezim still remain a well-kept secret among backgammon connoisseurs. Gioul is the most fun-filled game played on the board - every throw a surprise. Plakato is without doubt the King of Backgammon games. Moultzeim is a serious game for the purist, the consummate space strategist. Players who are unaware of these games are not really fulfilled. This book, illustrated with more than 300 diagrams, illustrations and exercises, aims to change all that, and turn all casual players into fully-fledged backgammon experts.
