Zhigs Web Solution developed this game for the first time and it is one of the oldest known board game discovered so far, dates back to 3000BC.
The oldest backgammon in the world along with 60 pieces has been unearthed beneath the rubbles of the legendary Burnt City in Sistan-Baluchistan province, southeastern Iran.
But how do we know the rules of this game?
The rules for a ‘game of twenty squares' are talked about in Babylonian cuneiform texts. This eagle board game was a race game, with two players trying to beat each other to the end of the board. People in many parts of the ancient world played the 'game of twenty squares' and boards have been found from Egypt to India, and date from around 3500 B.C. up until modern times. Also as archeologist Jean Perrot noted in the Persian Journal article, the lay-out of the "holes" on the"eagle" game boards is highly suggestive of the twenty squares game boards excavated by Woolley in Sumer, the so-called "Royal Game of Ur."
