This is a group for people of all skill levels who would like to get together for the ancient game of backgammon. Anyone interested in making some new friends and having some fun should come and join. We've lately been meeting in the South OC region at Lampost Pizza in Irvine (Culver and I-5) and Lampost Lake Forest (El Toro Road). We have been seeing 8-10 members come out consistently, so the momentum is here. Sometimes we meet at Cooks Corner on a sunny afternoon... sometimes at various members homes. Lampost Pizza has been working great because there aren't waitresses that we feel like we are interfering with their tips and business.
We have members that have never played a game (until they come) all the way up to pip-counting statisticians and gurus. So it's a very broad experience spectrum, but we all have fun and we all learn a lot. See you behind a board!
I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
