Welcome to Backgammon World
There is no doubt about it, Backgammon has been around for thousands of years. In fact if you take a few minutes of your time to read the "History of Backgammon" you will see that proof was found that the game was played by the ancient Egyptians as early as 3000BC. Over the years, the game was known by different names such as Senet, Nard, Shesh Besh and many others.
Through the many years of changes, by different cultures and countries, the game has evolved to where Backgammon (or Tables) had become one of the most popular games in the world. In fact in the 1970's Backgammon came into the world spotlight when the first Backgammon World Championships were held in the Bahamas.
In the late 1970's and early 1980's, as video games and pinball games became more popular, board games (or parlor games) lost some of their appeal, until recently.
With the advent and ever increasing popularity of the computer generation, many of the older and well established games of the world have seen a bit of a re-birth. Some computer software manufacturers realized this and often many of the most popular software titles sold in stores were games.
As computer users around the world become more comfortable with the Internet, it only makes logical sense that their game play would also move online. In recent years online gaming has become extremely popular.
