I Hate Backgammon

I think backgammon hates me more though. I don't mind losing a game of skill, but it's really frustrating to continually lose game that involves a high element of chance.

I actually just learned to play it the other day but I'm giving up on it. Just like cribbage or any of these other games where about half of it has to do with the hand you're dealt or the die that are cast. On those games, the odds always seem to favor the other person. My dad and my brother are exactly the opposite. It's strange.

I'll stick to chess, there is no luck involved in chess, either you make good moves or you don't; there is no middle ground.

I'll never get back the 4 hours of my life that I just spent playing that dumb game.
