If you like traveling and you like backgammon, then you might want to get your hands on some of the products that BagGames has to offer. BagGames is a company that specializes in games that can be lugged around during trips. The good thing about the products that they offer is that they are so compact and yet they can be re-assembled to make up a full-sized board. As of this writing, the company offers checkers, chess, and backgammon.
So why are they called “bag games?” The name is pretty self-explanatory. The way the board games are designed, they fit into one small bag – board, pieces, dice, and everything that is needed to play the game. Once you need to play the game, though, the pieces can be all fit together and the board would be just like the board for your “traditional” backgammon set at home.
I do not have one of these babies yet but I am seriously thinking of getting one, especially since we love to go on trips. I can just imagine having to wait out a plane ride that is several hours long. (I normally take a nap but sometimes when the flight is too long, I stay awake for hours as well.) Another scenario would be when the plane gets delayed – which seems to be happening to me a lot lately. Instead of just sitting there at the airport staring at nothing, I could play backgammon with my partner.
