Hi, just want to know if there are backgammon junkies in Singapore. I'll be arriving soon and be looking to play BG during off days.

ok, what is BG? Someone please explain the game to me.

I recently played 'Taboo' - where in a team member has to describe a word using other words (any words other than the specifically banned ones ) and the other team member has to guess the correct word.

For instance, you will be asked to describe 'Medicine' without using tablet or pill or syrup etc.

Turns out to be amazing fun especially if your team mates are in sync ...theme-wise. The other day my 'Harry Potter 'maniac friends actually had to describe 'Dungeon' and asked 'Where does Professor Snape hold his classes!' :S :P

BG = Backgammon. Its a board game. If you look up Yahoo games, you'll find backgammon there, and tutes for it too. Or else, there's always google.
It's not getting any smarter out there. You have to come to terms with stupidity, and make it work for you.
