About Us

Backgammon is one of the world’s oldest and most exciting pastimes, dating back nearly 5,000 years to ancient Mesopotamia. The 2-player game beautifully combines strategy and luck to make for thrilling outcomes that are nearly impossible to repeat. Every dice roll threatens to alter the balance of power on the board, forcing players to constantly reassess their strategies and anticipate possible countermoves by their opponent. Though the dice may decide a single game, a true master will demonstrate greater consistency over a series. Backgammon's most thrilling element is the optional use of a doubling cube, which allows players to raise the stakes at any point during a game. If you are a skilled tactician, board game enthusiast or simply an inveterate gambler then this is the society for you!
