Backgammon is believed to have originated at around 3’000 B.C. in Mesopotamia and is the oldest known recorded game in history. It’s popularity increased again in the 1960’s due to the efforts of Prince Alexis Obelensky who organized the first Official Backgammon World Championships in the Bahamas, the winning of which became backgammon’s highest honour.
