Protection Against Destruction

Researchers delving into ancient Indian backgammon lore have uncovered fascinating aspects of the game. Legend has it that when a player rolls double 1, it awakens Shiva – one of the principal deities of Hinduism, known as "The Destroyer." This event can have disastrous consequences for the player who made the roll. Thankfully, Ramesh Balakrishnan, one of India's finest backgammon players, has discovered a method to protect players from the dreaded "Eyes of Shiva." By encircling the board with ginger powder, Shiva's influence can be neutralized, allowing the game to proceed as usual.

This poster is a must-have for any backgammon enthusiast who respects the game. It serves as a reminder to stay vigilant against this potentially destructive roll.
