What we're about

Welcome to Colorado Backgammon

The Colorado Backgammon Club is part of the USBGF Local Club Initiative and a PRIME USBGF Club. We provide players a chance to participate in tournament and league play on a regular basis, as well as learn basic rules and strategy of the game, including how to use the doubling cube. All events are conducted by volunteers with personal commitments to making every event a fantastic experience, while working towards growing the backgammon community.

We currently meet for League Tournament play every Thursday and on the last Saturday or Sunday of the month. You must be a USBGF member to participate in tournament play. From time to time, we will be offering free Novice and Intermediate weekend clinics, so check back occasionally to see what is on the schedule. Free clinics do not require USBGF membership, but there are tons of resources available to its members, so check it out.

Please spend a moment and check out our websites – DenverBG.org (https://denverbg.org) and ColoradoBackgammon.com (http://www.coloradobackgammon.com). The Colorado Backgammon Club uses Meetup (https://www.meetup.com/Colorado-Backgammon-Association) for all online and venue information as well as updated tournament and clinic details. Tournament rules governing play are posted on the USBGF website (http://usbgf.org/docs/rules.pdf). We play using the Crawford rule and legal moves (http://www.coloradobackgammon.com/examples-legal-moves/).

*All Staff are strictly volunteers, please contact us if you would like to help.

**100% of any and all donations and / or proceeds go towards maintaining the Colorado and Denver Backgammon programs and member benefits.

Participation in Colorado Backgammon Club events are by invitation only (everyone is invited until they are uninvited) and the Club reserves the right to prevent a player from participation without cause or reason.

We use ABT rules. This means dice on checkers are good and legal moves. For further details, see http://usbgf.org/docs/rules.pdf

There is often a Chouette before and after the tournament. Our server will frequent our room from the main bar. The room is ours, so enjoy the backgammon as well as the food and beverages.

COVID-19: As of now, there are no restrictions. However, be prepared to wear a mask should restrictions be reinstated. Keep our community safe.

So, save your spot in what will be a fabulous tournament and a great time!
