Backgammon Τα πάντα για το Backgammon


Tavli is greeks favorite board game. Favorite game for generations and generations of greek people in every age all over the world. Tavli is played in a wooden frame with 30 counters in two different colors (15 counters of each color). The word tavli is used for the game but also for the board that the game is played. The players move the counters in specific places inside tavli board, which is split in two parts, according to the dice. The purpose is, in every variation of the game, the player to manage to move all his counters in specific places and then to gather them out of the game. If the player manages this before his opponent manages to gather at least one of his counters, the winningcount as double win (double game). If the opponent manages to gather even one counter, then the winner takes only one point. The game usually finishes in 3,5 or more usally in 7 winning points.

The variations of the game tavli that are played by greeks are “plakoto”, “portes” (doors), “feyga” and “gioul”, which is played rarely. The “doors” are same as the international backgammon (but without doublind cube)
