Why We Do It
We learn by playing. And reading. And studying. And discussing. And playing some more. Together. As a League. We’re in love with the game, and want to spread the passion for it throughout the region. We welcome players of all abilities. We were all beginners once.
The core members of the Dallas Backgammon League have been playing together, in one group or another, since the 1970s. Our members range from complete neophytes to highly-regarded, world class tournament champions. We do what we do for the love of the game.
What We Do
We play backgammon. A lot. If you want to play backgammon— or learn to play backgammon— the Dallas Backgammon League is the best place to do it in all of North Texas. How we play, as a League, can be put into three buckets:
Relaxed Pre-Tournament Play
Friendly matches begin when players arrive, usually starting around 6:30 PM. Come learn!
Points-Tallied Open Tournament
Bracketed, points-tallied tournament play begins around 7:30 with a $20 entry fee.
Monte Carlo Nights
Added Stakes, Added Fun
Occasional added-money tournaments. Higher stakes equals higher energy! Members only!

Except for holidays, we play every Wednesday, same time, same place, same everything. Just find a date when you can make it, and join us!
