Backgammon players of New York: NYC Backgammon is the largest group of active and participating members in the NYC; meeting great people to play with has never been easier.

The main meetup is held once each month, typically a Tuesday or Wednesday evening from 6pm to approximately 11:30 pm. Players can come and go as they like for casual play (the main meetup is not held tournament style)
Location is downstairs at:

Josie Wood's Pub

New York City Backgammon was founded by Rod Covlin, April 8, 2008 with an inaugural group comprised of nearly 50 players. At a current membership of over 600 members, NYC Backgammon is not only the largest group of participating and active backgammon players in New York, it is the largest Backgammon Meetup in the world! In addition to the main meetup, our group occasionally holds special events including tournaments in conjunction with NY Athletic Club Backgammon, and chouettes at locations in the Village, Williamsburg, Brooklyn, and other locations as announced.
