Oriental restaurant SCHESCH BESCH - the name

SCHESCH BESCH - also known as backgammon - is one of the oldest board games in the world. It is a game played by two players whereby playing pieces are moved according to the roll of dice. In order to win this game one has to remove all of his/her pieces from the board before his/her opponent does. Backgammon is a very famous game played by just anyone in the Caucasus and the Middle East. It has become customary to name the dice rolls by their Persian and Azeri numbers: Schesch which is Persian and stands for the number six and Besch which is Azeri and means five from which SCHESCH BESCH took its name from.
