ChivaGammon - a new variation
A new variation of modern backgammon has been invented: ChivaGammon.
It can be played with or without clocks with the regular time settings. It´s modern backgammon with cube played as a match to 5 points.
However, the Crawford Rule has been skipped and instead, in order to win the match, a player must reach minimum 5 points, but with minimum 2 points difference. Like in Tennis and other sports, the match continues as long as the 2 points difference have not been reached.
It´s a great game, demanding special skills and calculations. Try it out.
