    Hi Yusuf,

    Membership Blitz tournaments award the first place finisher their choice of either a new USBGF Premium membership PLUS a 1-year GammonSite membership, a 1-year extension of their current USBGF Premium membership PLUS a 1-year GammonSite membership, or a $60 credit to spend as they wish at the USBGF BG Shop. The option of a USBGF BG Shop credit shall only apply to current USBGF Basic, Youth, or Premium members in good standing who win their bracket of 8. A USBGF BG Shop credit may also be used to purchase a 1-year GammonSite membership at a value of $14. All Guest members who win any USBGF Membership Blitz will be awarded a 1-year USBGF Premium membership PLUS a 1-year GammonSite membership upon their first win, and shall not have the option of applying their winnings elsewhere.

    NEW! Players with sufficient BG Shop account credit may utilize their existing credit for entry fee purchases into our new FTH Board Blitzes at $30 per entry. Please contact Tara Mendicino at to make arrangements for entry fee processing. See our tournament calendar for more details on the the FTH Board Blitz events.

    Please let me know if you have any questions or need any assistance.

    Hi Karl,

    I do not believe I can fix that issue for a few reasons, however, I will continue to research it.

    My apologies and thank you.

    in reply to: Basic Members can only see half of the Learning Videos #9235


    I can fix that, however, it requires that each page be edited by hand. There are over 200 pages that will need to be modified, one-by-one.

    I will do my best to get as much of it done over the coming weekend.

    Regarding Gridgammon, please email me with your account issues. I can be reached at

    Thank you!

    Hi John,

    I would estimate approximately 150 players. Currently there are 140 players online right now (around 3:00 PM EST).

    I hope that helps!

    in reply to: Choosing a backgammon set #4098


    We have the following in stock in the USBGF BG Shop:

    1. CHH Backgammon Board. The CHH board is priced at $50 (approximately $60 including shipping). This board is one I have played on before. It is basic but affordable and ideal for a beginning backgammon player. It is certainly fine to take along to any tournament.

    2. Crisloid Tournament Attache Backgammon Board priced at $300 (15% off for USBGF Premium and Youth members making it $255, not including shipping). This is a lovely board manufactured by Crisloid. It has a light blue exterior, red and blue checkers, red and blue dice, and 2 leather dice cups with “USBGF” inscribed on the sides.

    It folds and also features the USBGF logo on the backgammon board surface.

    The fields of this backgammon board are made from high quality cork that not only looks great but also allows the gorgeous weighty checkers to move gracefully across its surface.
    Dimensions: Open: 30¼” x 20¾” x 1¾”; Closed: 15? x 20¾” x 3½”; Checker Size: 1¾” x ½”

    3. The Crisloid Table Top Board does not fold. It is priced at $200, not including shipping.

    All sets are available now.

    For further information, please see:

    If you have additional questions or wish to place an order, you are welcome to call us at 210-573-3073 and we would be happy to help you.

    Thank you very much!
