Anchorage Backgammon Club


founded in 2010



Backgammon is an ancient game of strategy, whose antecedents date back some 4000 to 5000 years to ancient Babylonia and Egypt.


Backgammon is relatively easy to learn -- easier than chess -- and an individual game can be played in as little as 5 to 10 minutes.  Nevertheless, it can take a lifetime to truly master the intricacies of backgammon.  (3 minute video summarizing the rules of backgammon)
