Backgammon may be the world's oldest board game. Invented in Mesopotamia, there is evidence of it being played in ancient Egypt, Rome, China, Japan, and England. Over the millennia it evolved into today's simple but multilayered game of tiles and strategy. Made by artisans in Lebanon, this game board is handcrafted using hundreds of tiny pieces--called tesserae--of inlaid walnut, olive, lemon, apricot, and rosewood. As each piece is handcrafted, exact colors and patterns of the inlay may vary. Can also play chess and checkers on the reverse of the folding case. Backgammon and checker pieces included.
