It's the glue that binds backgammon in the USA. It's given me an opportunity to play and to serve my fellow enthusiasts, not to mention an outlet for my writing about the game.
I'm new to it, but like it so far. Tips and problems are good.
I joined for the fun, the tournaments. For learning, Chris Bray’s weekly article and Primetime magazine.
Love the game, statistics, volatility and the different outcomes. Love playing against strong players with beautiful minds.
