In every kafeneio around Greece and many Greek run cafes worldwide you are guaranteed to find people playing the beloved game of Tavli.

Tavli means board in Greek and there are three games of Tavli commonly played:
Portes – most similar to Western backgammon
Plakoto – a game where one checker can trap another checker at the same point
Fevga – where one checker by itself can block a point
These games are played one after another, in matches of three, five, or seven points.
