Backgammon

Backgammon is a board game for two players and its history can be traced back almost 5000 years to archaeological discoveries in Mesopotamia. Travellers to Greece often report seeing men of a certain age sitting outside tavernas playing backgammon.

This group started up online and using Zoom. Face to face meetings are now also being planned in line with government restrictions. As this is a new group we welcome beginners as well as those who have previously played and might be a bit rusty. It will take us a little time to suit those who may be more experienced players although they are welcome on the understanding that they may be able to encourage and support the less experienced players in the group. The aim of the group is to share enjoyment of the game and have fun with each other whilst playing this game of skill, strategy and luck.

The ethos of this group is about encouraging learning about and understanding of backgammon in a friendly and supportive environment. Although the objective of the game is to win by bearing all your checkers off the board be-fore your opponent can do so the game is typically played with a generosity of spirit, win or lose and this is the spirit in which this group is established.
