ETYM Origin unknown; perhaps from Dan. bakke tray + Eng. game; or very likely the first part is from Eng. back, and the game is so called because the men are often set back.
A board game for two players; pieces move according to throws of the dice.
Board game for two players, often used in gambling. It was known in Mesopotamia, Greece, and Rome and in medieval England.
The board is marked out in 24 triangular points of alternating colors, 12 to each side. Throwing two dice, the players move their 15 pieces around the board to the 6 points that form their own “inner table”; the first player to move all his or her pieces off the board is the winner.


/ biːtl̩ /


Insect having biting mouthparts and front wings modified to form horny covers overlying the membranous rear wings.
Common name of insects in the order Coleoptera (Greek “sheath-winged”) with leathery forewings folding down in a protective sheath over the membranous hindwings, which are those used for flight. They pass through a complete metamorphosis. They include some of the largest and smallest of all insects: the largest is the Hercules beetle Dynastes hercules of the South American rainforests, 15 cm/6 in long; the smallest is only 0.05 cm/0.02 in long. Comprising more than 50% of the animal kingdom, beetles number some 370,000 named species, with many not yet described.
Beetles are found in almost every land and freshwater habitat and feed on almost anything edible. Examples include click beetle or skipjack species of the family Elateridae, so called because if they fall on their backs they right themselves with a jump and a loud click; the larvae, known as wireworms, feed on the roots of crops. In some tropical species of Elateridae the beetles have luminous organs between the head and abdomen and are known as fireflies. The potato pest Colorado beetle Leptinotarsa decemlineata is striped in black and yellow. The blister beetle Lytta vesicatoriaf, a shiny green species from S Europe, was once sold pulverized as an aphrodisiac and contains the toxin cantharidin. The larvae of the furniture beetle Anobium punctatum and the deathwatch beetle Xestobium rufovillosum and their relatives are serious pests of structural timbers and furniture (see woodworm).
