NANNON may be the most amazing gaming discovery of the 21st century! It is an easy game to learn, but has the same feeling as Backgammon. Roll the die and move one checker if you can. You can't land on yourself or adjacent opponents. It takes less than a minute to play.
The game goes anywhere because it fits inside an Altoids tin! Great in a pub, cafe, restaurant, etc, but not on an airplane because you'll lose the dice!
