Everywhere you go in Greece you can see men, women and children playing the beloved game of Tavli. Developed by the ancient Egyptians 5,000 years ago, the Greeks have taken this board game to heart and made it their own. Known in the west as Backgammon, Tavli is played mostly for fun and sometimes for money.
