Backgammon & Stokers. 7pm

A game of luck and skill played by two people with 15 checkers each on a board of 24 spaces or points. You move according to rolls of the dice, trying to bring your checkers home and bear them off before your opponent does. The strategy and fun come from blocking and hitting your opponent along the way.

There is nothing formal about this, just some like-minded souls wanting to share a social space to enjoy Backgammon. Everyone is welcome to join in or watch.

Backgammon is, in essence, a race. Your overall plan is to take the lead in the race. If you are behind in the race you must do something about it, such as containing one of your opponent's checkers or forcing him to leave you a shot which you hit. «When ahead in the race, race. When behind in the race, don't race.»
