What we're about

If you're looking to play Backgammon live, with real people you can enjoy a chat with, rather than on the web, then join us. We are a new group for anyone wanting to play the game they love or wanting to learn. Backgammon is one of the world’s truly great board games. It has been played for over 3,000 years – a testament to its enduring fascination. Hundreds of people play live games regularly in the UK and thousands play regularly online.
I am hoping that in time we will be able to play social and league games as the group grows, but first we just need to get this thing off the ground.

Upcoming events (4+)

Play backgammon in St Neots!

Waggon & Horses

We meet at the Waggon and Horses, Great North Road, Eaton Socon, on alternate Mondays from 7pm until 11pm.

(The Rivermill and White Horse are now both closed on Mondays for the foreseeable future)

We normally play reasonably casual games and the format will be very much whatever suits the people who turn up! More serious players are also welcome to join our League (see cambridgebackgammon.org) where matches are organised at mutually convenient times and locations around the area.

Swavesey White Horse backgammon evening

The White Horse

Join us for a weekly fun night with a regular Chouette, as well as a friendly introduction to the game for beginners! A Backgammon Chouette is a team based version of Backgammon that requires you to be comfortable playing with a doubling cube. Moves and plays are discussed, so it’s a great way to learn from more experienced players.

Backgammon in Bedford

The Park, Bedford

Join us for an informal evening of backgammon at our newest venue! Play starts around 7pm and the format of the evening will depend on numbers... Players of all standards welcome, and if you haven't played before we'll be delighted to introduce you to the game!

We expect to meet up monthly at the Park, Kimbolton Road, on Monday evenings in between the St Neots ones.
