    It was agreed by Sander and Gus that they would play ‘speed’ with only three minutes time bank and 15 seconds to make a play.
    Ordinarily in WSOB events, players have 1.5 or 2 minutes per point (ie in a 5 point match it would be 7.5 minutes per player at the outset) and 15 seconds per play.

    It can be a child’s game. For instance I’m pretty sure Gus’ niece could beat the OP and myself at this game with both hands tied behind her back. What is she? Three? Maybe four years old?

    backgammon is very similar to poker in terms of balance of luck and skill. With the doubling cube you can also raise the stakes, sometimes a ‘raise’ or ‘re-raise/ re-cube’ will get a guy (or gal) off a game he should be calling or taking – like a bluff i poker.

    it’s unique to JC 🙂

    lol if you approach backgammon with that attitude, you will be sorry and will be in trouble.
    try it and see if you are not breathless at the end.

    Why does John say Fal-a-fel? Is that an English thing? Sounds ridiculous. Surely the correct pronunciation is Fal-ar-fel.
