  • THIS IS OUR MAIN MANHATTAN MEETUP - mostly casual match play, usually attended by 25-35 players.

    "Clinic Matches" will be offered at this meetup. Players looking to take their understanding of the game to a higher level can participate in group "Clinic Matches" lead by resident Backgammon Giant, Richard Munitz.

    Please bring a board if you have one, though if you don't, we do have a few extra boards available. New members: introduce yourself to any of the organizers.  To get you started we'll find someone to pair you up with for your first match. After your first match, please feel free to seek out available players to meet and play, throughout the night, just ask if someone would like to play.
