Further evidence for On The Origin of Species uncovered
Ok - so that's rather a flippant joke I agree but.....
Charles Darwin was a backgammon player. Of note is Darwin's strict
schedule for playing backgammon. Every night between 8.00 and 8.30
Darwin would play 2 games of backgammon with Emma. He even kept
score of every game he played for years! He once bragging that
over the years he had won "2,795 games to her piddling 2,490."
