Bring a friend and challenge them to a game of tic tac toe, backgammon, checkers, dominoes and more.

Tic tac toe is a game that has been found in many cultures worldwide.

Whilst its name varies – noughts and crosses, Xs and Os – it is believed that the Ancient Romans and Ancient Egyptians played a version.

Similarly, versions of backgammon are played all over the world, in Persia, Egypt and Iraq, Italy, East Asia, Western Europe and the United States.
