It turns out that members of the sci-fi club also play backgammon. After the showing of Monsters Inc, we went to the Hobgoblin and played till we got thrown out. The barman says he plays quite well, I look forward to it. So far today I have done no work.
I can't believe I just set my record for my biggest ever loss. I lost a 32-doubled game of backgammon. I still think all our decisions were right, thinking back on it, but it was an amazing game, really close the whole way through, moving back and forth. I spent too many (about 6) turns on the bar with a 1/3 chance of coming off towards the end, and that screwed it, I only lost by about 3 men.
