A wise man should Quflän by name, an Indian legend, have invented a game that accurately represented a year.
This game had 24 fields for 24 hours in a day, with 12 fields per side corresponded to the months of the year. 30 pieces were adapted to the days of a month. Two cubes were available for day and night and the 7 dice eyes agreed on opposite sides coincide with the days of a week. In India the game, "Nard" was named.
Since the Church of England in the 18th Century, a futile battle against the game, led it to say backgammon, something about "back" and "Garmen".
Today, Backgammon is one of the most famous games in the world. It is surprisingly easy to learn, but to win is not easy. The winner is who has also played first all tiles from the field.
