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.

Play Backgammon Chouette in Swavesey

The White Horse

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.

Play backgammon in St Neots!

The River Mill

We are back at the Rivermill this Monday! Fingers crossed that this will be a regular thing and Zoom meetings are over... for the time being we'll have to make sure we only arrange ourselves in groups of 6 (or sit outside if the weather allows). We'll see who can come and play it a bit by ear for now, until the remaining restrictions are lifted.
