Because it is the most favorite game for many generations of Greeks, it is normal to see frequent mentions about tavli in literature, in poetry, in cinema, in art generally. As a pure game of the every day Greek person, it is interwoven with the Greek folklore civilization.
Many times of course, it has been accused as a game for lazy persons. But there are a lot the things of our civilization that have been accused as well. Most of them have been re-evaluated and by the time have been restored while tavli in our conscience was and still is in the highest lever of our approval and acceptance.
