My Trip To Armenia 2001: Handmade Backgammon (Khor Virab)

Backgammon is an amazing game that I enjoy play, so while I was in Armenia I found a handmade inlaid backgammon board. The board features Khor Virap with Mt. Ararat behind it. Since 2001 was the 1700th Anniversary of Armenia becoming a Christian nation, it displayed 301-2001 on the bottom right corner. The pieces of the game are of the 16 kings of Armenia.
