Okey is a tile-based game, very popular in Turkey. It is almost always played by four players, although, in principle, it can be played by two or three players. It is very similar to the game Rummikub, as it is played with the same set of boards and tiles, but under a different set of rules. The game was derived from the original Rummikub after cultural contacts of Gastarbeiter in Germany. In Turkey and among Turkish communities abroad, it is very popular at cafés.
Backgammon is one of the oldest known board games. Its history can be traced back nearly 5,000 years to archaeological discoveries in Mesopotamia, modern day Iraq. It is a two-player game where each player has fifteen pieces that move between twenty-four triangles according to the roll of two dice.
