The Raja introduces the game of chess, and Burzoe demonstrates nard, played with dice made from ivory and teak.
The game known in the West as backgammon is played widely in the Middle East and Central Asia.
Hitting a blot, reentering a piece from the bar, and bearing off, all had the same rules as today.
The chief differences with modern backgammon were the use of three rather than two dice, the starting of all pieces off the board (with them entering in the same way that pieces on the bar enter in modern backgammon), and naturally no doubling cube (which was introduced in the 1920s).
Gul bara, sometimes referred to as "rosespring backgammon" or "crazy narde", is a variant where there is no hitting.
In Greece, tables games are called tavli (related to the word tavla, meaning "board" or "table" or "tawleh" from Arabic, and cognate to the Latin tabula).
