TANGRAM
On Tangram in 2011 Dario De Toffoli begun his “Viaggio intorno al Poker”. He wrote about this game to present it to the people that were fearing it: “Let’s begin a new trip. The most played game in the world. A game that has a doubtful past, surrounded by whiskey and smoke. A game that changed a lot in the last years. Somebody will say that it was about time, somebody else will not agree. Whatever your opinion might be, I think this game deserves attention as it has become not only a ludic but also a cultural and social event. I will analyse it under many different aspects: history, math, social, legislative, media, industrial and of course the game as it is (rules and variations).”
