We are now adding back open play nights on the third Wednesday of every month and also on the 5th Wednesday when there is one. Newcomers are always welcome but if you are new to backgammon and don’t feel confident entering a tournament open play night is a great place to start.
For more experienced players take part in a chouette, or play head to head, either unlimited games or practice matches.
I am a bit late with this post but we are back to live play every Wednesday at Rounding Third. We are starting tournaments at 6:30 pm instead of 7:00 pm. There are usually a couple of players at Rounding Third starting about 5:00 so come early for pre tournament play if you like.
As long as we have at least 4 players we are playing some form of tournament. We are experimenting with various round robin formats to increase the number of matches everyone gets to play during a tournament.
We are not keeping a leaderboard the rest of this year. We will consider what we are going to do next year when we decide on tournament formats.
If you are new to backgammon and don’t feel ready for touramant play come anyway. One of our experienced players will be happy to help you learn the game rather than play in the tournament.
