  Backgammon is very popular here!
by greekcypriot

A game of backgammon is very popular in the (kafenio) cafes where older people meet for a chat and time of relaxation.

You will see friends gathered around the small table where their friends play ....sometimes the game can get serious, and the friends who participate bet who is going to win and this is fun.

Sometimes at these cafes or Kafenia as they are called in Cyprus you can find friends playing cards but they are not playing for money. Just for fun and it can be a favourite passtime.
