Here's a great idea for keeping kids quiet while having fun on long car trips and other boredom-inducing situations. This miniaturized game will also help kids develop and improve their backgammon skills. The game kit has heavy board portfolio-style covers that open to present an attached, spiral-bound rule book and player's guide. The kit's inside back cover is a backgammon board with a metallic interior designed to hold magnetic playing pieces in place. The magnet-tipped pieces and dice come in a box attached to the kit's inside spine. The attached rule book also presents tips on strategies for winning that will keep beginning players interested and encourage them to sharpen their skill.
