  • U3A-Backgammon

    Backgammon is one of the oldest known board games. Its history can be traced back nearly 5,000 years. It’s a two-player game where each player has fifteen pieces (checkers) which move between twenty-four triangles (points) according to the roll of two dice. The objective of the game is to be first to bear off, i.e. move all fifteen checkers off the board. There isn’t a U3A group at the moment, carrying on this ancient tradition, so we thought we’d try to form one. If there’s enough interest, we’ll have an initial planning meeting and then meet in group members’ houses. We live in Woodseats. All levels of skill would be welcome. One of us is an experienced player; the other an absolute beginner.
