Quackgammon Takes Flight With Family-friendly Backgammon Adaptation
If it looks like a classic board game, plays fun for the whole family, and sounds affordably priced, it must be Endless Games all-new Quackgammon.
By: Endless Games
Quackgammon is a simpler version of classic backgammon, designed for quick-play that can be enjoyed by the whole family, including young children. A couple of fun facts that distinguish this version, among others, and make it a sure Top 10 board game for 2009:
➢ SMALL FLOCK OF FLYING FOWL: Each backgammon player moves his or her 15 checkers (also known historically as stones, men, counters, pawns, or chips) around the traditional board; in Quackgammon, each player moves his or her flock of three “mallards”
➢ SAFETY IN NUMBERS: Rather than gaining protection by having multiple checkers on one specific “point”, Quackgammon fowl are instead protected by staying positioned next to each other. Otherwise, that fowl is quite simply a sitting duck.
Quackgammon is part of Endless Games popular “Quick Picks” line of affordable, travel-sized, family games. It has an MSRP of $9.99 and is recommended for ages eight and up.
