“Tawlet Al Zaher”
Commonly called “tawlit zaher”, backgammon is an oriental board
game that could easily be likened to a checkers game played with
dice. A true ancestor of table games, among many others, the oldest
backgammon dates back (almost) 5,000 years.
In Lebanon, backgammon is much more than just a game to pass the
time; it’s a cornerstone of Lebanese identity.
