Tric-trac and other board game studies...

From Articles About Everything:

"...We’re not sure when or where Tric-Trac originated. The object is not to bear pieces off the board, but to make points, which are scored with cribbage-like holes on the side of the board. Pieces not removed from the board. Points are scored if you “could” land on certain points with your dice throws, though you don’t actually land on them, you just note them and score - these are conventions of gentility. Your opponent can score any points you forget to mark, like cut-throat cribbage..."
