New Website Launched gets an overhaul and a new look
The U.S. Backgammon Federation website gets an overhaul and new look.

After many months of hard work and dedication, the U.S. Backgammon Federation is delighted to announce the launch of its new website.  It has a brand new look and is designed to make it easier to find the information you are looking for and stay up to date on what is happening in the backgammon world. Fresh content is added daily, so be sure to check back often.

We hope you find the new helpful and fun to use.  With its user-friendly interface, improved navigation, and functionality, we trust it will become a go-to resource for our backgammon community.  

Our heartfelt thanks to our Capital Campaign contributors who donated $175K, $50k of which was dedicated toward building our new website.
