Backgammon for Blood

Backgammon for Blood
Becker
1975

I had no idea that backgammon was a blood sport.

I have never played backgammon, so I can’t speak to the quality of this book.The title is kind of cool, so points for that. I did take a look at the beginning chapters and still didn’t quite “get it”.  I’m not very quick on picking up games.

As a weeding candidate, unless the rules have changed or the tone or vocabulary is dated, I wouldn’t necessarily toss this. Given that the book is over 40 years old, it’s not too bad.
