On February 27, 2006 the world was introduced to a game that would provide the inspiration for the world’s greatest party activity. This game was called…Marshgammon.
It combined all the best features of all the best games. Candyland, I Never, Pictionary, you name it. Naturally, you would expect Backgammon to play a pivotal role in this new game. But no! In the immortal words of it’s creator:
Backgammon sucks! We took the only good part of Backgammon, the Gammon, and left the rest in the trash where it belongs.
By now, anyone familiar with How I Met Your Mother has recognized this introduction to Brettgammon and the name itself is a shameless and blatant ripoff. However, I’m a firm believer that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, so consider this a homage to my favorite TV show of all time.
As with it’s predecessor, Brettgammon is a mashup of all of my favorite party games. It began as a simple concept to entertain my friends during a recent get-together but grew in my mind to such epic proportions that it actually took us two days and a revolving door of participants to finish. That’s the beauty of Brettgammon: you can pick and choose the challenges that are most interesting or randomly select and let the universe decide!
