Playing Backgammon with Andrew

It’s not always wise to win at Backgammon.

We play slowly and even look for

a little cheating; a palmed counter,

diverted attention. Like so many


games we play together, the point is

that dots on two dice always come

to more than one. No contest. Fun,

rolling and counting. In turn. In balance.


  1. The counting of lifes scales...Nice work John...Can't play the game but know when I'm losing...

  2. Like this! My husband and I courted playing backgammon at the bar where he worked. :-)
