Backgammon boards are generally on the back of checkerboards, and the pieces can fall all over the place if you are not in a sitting position that is not moving. Some backgammon boards are produced without the use of a checkerboard because the game has been growing with such popularity once again. This is a game that has been played for hundreds of years, and that has been played around the world before the time of television and computers.
To take your game on the go, travel backgammon is a game that will give those who are not driving a chance to do something besides stare out the window! Travel backgammon is a fun smaller version of the larger board game but that will keep the pieces from being lost as often as well!
This smaller version can often be packed in a backpack or in a pocket, not taking much room while in the car or in the plane. What is great about fitting in so many small spaces is that you most likely already are going to be carrying around so much so you can the convenience of having smaller items for something else to do so you can pack more munchies or more clothes for traveling!
Who is going to enjoy travel backgammon while traveling? Anyone of the age over seven is going to enjoy this game. Those who are younger than seven might not understand the rules as well as those who are little older. If you are traveling anywhere during the day, in a car, on a plane, or on a train for more than an hour you will want something to keep you occupied. Keeping yourself, or the children occupied while traveling is going to keep down fights, problems, and the noise overall while traveling.
The travel version of backgammon is one that is played between two people. It is a small board usually with magnetic pieces so the pieces won’t fall anywhere. Losing pieces can make it difficult to play the game at all. Travel versions of backgammon can be made from cardboard, or from a more plastic like substance that will not break or get squashed easily when packed in your gear.
Travel backgammon sets are used for that free time in school, in hotels, while in the car, or even while at home. Some homes are small, so the needs for smaller things, or smaller games that will store easily are needed. Travel sized games fit the need just right.
