What we're about
Sapphire Backgammon Reviews "backgammon for all levels - many good players, and those with patience and willing to show new players how to play."
" the greatest company that one can wish for. A handful of us remained at the Club til nearly 11pm!"
"what a lovely group and welcoming host..."
Meetup fortnightly on Sundays at 3pm
A warm welcome.
This is a group for backgammon players of all standards - from beginners to champions, it really doesn't matter what level you are.
My aim is to have a laid back sociable afternoon and early evening of backgammon in pleasant surroundings in relaxed and friendly company.
I will choose a location to meet that is central that is hopefully served by numerous transport routes. I am open to suggestions of other places.. a park, cafe, or library, for example?
If you have one, please bring your own board, however, both I and others should have our own, and I do sometimes carry a spare - all we need is one board between two players. I am always delighted to play on different boards that are different in size, style and feel and to meet the players behind their boards.
I will ask for a contribution of £2 that helps me pay Meetup (yes Meetup sadly isn't free for Organisers and I pay a six-monthly subscription) and this also covers other admin fees. If for whatever reason you are unable to pay just let me know as I do not wish for anyone not to be able to join us and play backgammon.
We look forward to meeting and playing this enjoyable game with you soon.
