Up to you Just, but maybe not this weeks, I might be free next month frown but tell me when you want it.

Jokie :

Backgammon is a game of luck and skill. It is played by two people with 15 checkers each on a board consisting of 24 spaces or points. The checkers are moved according to rolls of the dice. Each player tries to bring his own checkers home and bear them off before his opponent does, hitting and blocking the enemy checkers along the way. wink

That reminds me of 'ular tangga' deh, MT. The difference is 'ular tangga' has many 'colourful pictures' and of course some 'stairs' to go up and down.

Highlander Bar in Grand Kemang on Thursday Night. I will bring Backgammon board down at 8pm. Just is that okay with you? Any others who want to come along and learn the skilled art of backgammon would be more than welcome!

Let me know who is up for it.

We might not play Backgammon if we're going to your place, Jokie! Haha...j/k!
And backgammon is different from congklak. At least backgammon doesn't have holes to fill in! wink

I'll play with you Chewwy -- er Backgammon that is, but different time and place please. Thursdays @ 8 are quiz nights in different places around town. How about Romance/Capt.Morgan's on a mellow Sunday afternoon?? I've never met an Indonesian of any stripe that plays backgammon. Millions of great chess players here, but no backgammon, kinda odd that.
