I remembered having a very ornate backgammon board in medieval times, and didn’t have to look very hard to find examples of such boards:

It’s frustrating when a confirmation comes that easily and it seems less remarkable and rewarding than a confirmation I really have to do some serious research for. ¬†Nonetheless, it was worth recording because none of the sources I’ve read mention a fondness for backgammon (though one source did mention a fondness for cards and frequent gambling debts).

If nothing else, it adds a bit of dimension to Count William.
