Backgammon is just like a language. Once learned it is never forgotten but lack of practice leads to rustiness. The initial moves in my first game of the Malta Backgammon League were hesitant and the end result was a loss for me. It was a pleasure though to be back behind a backgammon board and against a 3D human rather than a flat piece of computer software!
