Hello fellow and prospective Backgammon players

Welcome to our group. We meet every Tuesday at 10am (for 2 hours) in the St John's Ambulance Hall, behind the Top House (The Zetland) near the main railway station in Marske. There is the usual £1.50 fee.

The group is made up of varied experience, from 'never played', to 'played for years'.

The idea is that we all use the same set up, and play the same game, so if you are new to it, you shouldn't be confused by playing with different partners.

It is a great board game, based on luck of the dice, and storing away the pros and cons of different moves. As such it is quite leisurely, but also a good gentle exercise for the brain too.

I will endeavour to add to this page, links to You Tube, or other information which may help.

We break for refreshments at about 11am, and the group is friendly and welcoming, so you can join any time and feel comfortable.
