This initiative is being hosted and supported by Richard (Dicky) Biddle, who has been active in growing the game in London for well over a decade. Founder of the London Players’ Backgammon League, North London Backgammon & Fulham Backgammon Club, Richard has built up the profile of the game nearer to home at his favourite coffee shop, The Drawingroom.
Backgammon is a game that takes five minutes to learn but a lifetime to master. One of the first lessons a new player needs to learn is that Backgammon is not just about the luck of the dice. Backgammon brings in skills around strategy, risk and opportunity management, psychology, stamina, emotional self-control and as much or little mental arithmetic as you can handle. Not too dissimilar to the skills required of life itself.
You can learn how to play the game with this link to the BucksGammon website here.
