A Board Walk

The first backgammon board I ever saw was on the back of a chess board. The board unfolded, and on one side was a red and black 8 by 8 chess and checker board, on the other some funny triangles. I had no idea what they were used for. We had a box with chess men and checkers. I played both, neither very well. But I don't remember having backgammon stones or dice, and certainly there was no doubling cube.

I also don't remember the first board I played on. I know where it was, and when it was.
