Robert & Sue Joki have been throwing the cube at each other for over 10 years (in the privacy of their own home).
One night, Robert was lamenting the demise of the Backgammon Tournaments that use to occur in Portland back in the "Good Ol' Days" of the 1970's. We figured that SOMEONE must still play the game, but we were unsuccessful in our search for a bar or restaurant that still hosted any type of formal or informal play.
So -- they decided to organize it themselves (with your help)
A quick search on the internet showed that the interest in Portland was there for the game, and that is how this site began.
Join them in making new friends, consuming good food and generous libations, and generally having a great time at the first of many Backgammon Tournaments that they hope to sponsor here in Portland.
Be in on the ground floor of the resurgence of the game.....
