Mas'udi Quotes: It Was At This Time That Backgammon Was

It Was At This Time That Backgammon Was Invented And Began To Be Popular. It Is A Kind Of Paradigm Of How Wealth Is Acquired, Which In This World Is Not The Reward Of Intelligence Or Ability, Just As Luck Is Not A Product Of Skill ... If Luck Favours The Player, He Gets What He Wants; If It Doesn't, A Skilled And Prudent Man Cannot Win That Which Fortune Only Bestows On Whom It Likes. It Is Thus That The Good Things Of This World Are Apportioned By Chance.
