    The Ancient Egyptians played it. The Romans played it. And today it still thrives, with only the most cutthroat players coming out on top. Bruce Becker says of backgammon, "Luck is for losers!" and his guide brings readers his no-holds-barred and take-no-prisoners approach to this highly-competitive game. He discusses the science of chance, basics for beginners, probabilities and odds, and what he calls "Battle Strategy: The Basic Approach to War." Helpful diagrams of backgammon boards represent a variety of game situations, and there is also an appendix covering the rules of backgammon and their variants in play. It's the perfect gift for any dedicated player.
