HO HO HO Backgammon
As we look towards the approach of Christmas and the season of Goodwill to all men, with crushed feet and shredded tempers as we make our annual pilgrimage through the department stores and shopping malls, in search of the years' must have present, we check our list not once but twice for the perfect gift for that special person.
Picking the right present almost takes on military connotations in some households, Mum nightwear, Suzy Dolls and Dresses, Jimmy Playstation Games and Pajamas.
For Dad, socks and ties seem to be the usual option to avoid, conflict on Christmas Day. But, where's the fun in that, and no matter how much he protests Playstation Games are really just for the kids, so Dad needs something different, something that is fun yet challenging, easy to carry around, so that it can be played whenever and whenever he likes.
A good suggestion for Dad's dilemma is a backgammon set, a hand held backgammon set which can be either a small magnetic traveling set, or an electronic version, both are easy to carry and can be played anytime anywhere.
The electronic version is usually played against the computer, so there are various skill levels available, These versions usually provide a simple learn and play tutorial for the rank amateur, or for the better player a higher level entry. In some games for the more accomplished player multi-player games are also available, so you can develop your skills in your own tie and at your own pace.
Backgammon games whether electronic or not like most games vary so shop around. You can even buy both types online to avoid having your feet trampled on, but where's the fun in that, you know you want the cut and dash of Christmas, that's what's it's all about isn't?
