Welcome!

On Wednesday 1 October 2014 we are holding our first publicized and “formal” tournament. To accommodate players of all levels, the tournament will consist of two divisions: Fish and Shark. The tournament entry fee for the Fish Division will be $5. The entry fee for the Shark Division will be $50. All entry fees (100%) will be returned to the players.

The tournament will be a single elimination “playoff” bracket of 7-point matches, with the losing semifinalists playing for third place. To the extent possible, we will follow the Rules of the U.K. Backgammon Federation.

The tournament will start promptly at 7:00 p.m. Registration will begin at 6:30 p.m. Please bring your board . . . and your kids! The tournament director will pay the $5 Fish Division entry fee for the first five (5) young players under 18 years old who register for the tournament.

Who We Are

The Miami Backgammon Club is a friendly group of South Florida Backgammon players. Join us. Players of all levels welcome. No costs or membership fees. Tournaments are subject to entry fees. We play every week, including tournaments. See day, time and place.

      Every Wednesday evening, beginning at 6 p.m., at the Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables, Fla., at the 19th Hole Bar and Grill (around the back of the hotel at the golf course). Lately, we have been playing chouettes, but if we have a large number of players, we will have a tournament. In that event, the tournament begins at 7 p.m.

    New event! Let’s show those Boca Boys how to play the game!
    We now have some action in Miami, Ft. Lauderdale and Boca. If we can all get together, we could have a hell of a tournament!
    Maybe we can all meet up in October for the 2013 FLORIDA STATE BACKGAMMON CHAMPIONSHIP. [Go to backgammonpromotion.com to see brochure]
    Check out ‘meetup.com’, under Fort Lauderdale Backgammon. Tournaments on the fourth Sunday each month, from 12:30 to 4 or 5 PM.
    We just started a Tuesday evening tournament in Boca Raton, starting around 6 PM with dinner included. Spread the word to your friends and other backgammon players.
    Help me develop an extensive e-mail list by asking other players to e-mail me their e-mails. Feel free to call me with any questions.
    Good dice to you ,

    Hey guys, I haven’t been able to get to the wednesday meets much. I work till 8 so by the time I get there the it’s not long till the restaurant closes. If anyone wants to just play a money session for small stakes during the week maybe we can meet somewhere. My number is 786-308-1085. Text me! I’m tired of playing against the computer all the time! lol

    are there any groups in Fort Lauderdale or W. Broward?

  7. wendy says:

    I love Backgammon but would like to observe and play with no pressure… I used to play often but kind of rusty, and the Biltmore is beautiful setting…love to join your group, if you can welcome me…I live in SOBE and there are also great locations here, for example, on 41st street a place called ????oh, the Well. Also CG Yacht club may be nice…rusty but need fast play or I get bored

  8. Jorge says:

    hello everyone, my name is jorge. I was recently introduced to backgammon and was instantly hooked. I’m looking to join a local club. I actually live near downtown Miami and work near coral gables so this is perfect!

    what do I have to do to join this club?

  9. lance novak says:

    will there be backgammon players at the biltmore on wed. sept. 19??

  10. Chris MacLeod says:

    How many people are in your backgammon club? I own a bar/cafe called The Corner in downtown Miami and have a group of friends that are interested in backgammon. We currently play informally a few times a week. We were going to start our own tournament style gig over here but if you guys are already up and running maybe it makes more sense to join forces. Would you be amenable to setting up shop at The Corner?

    • Leo says:

      Chris,
      The more places we have to play the merrier. Are you still playing? If so, we can visit y’all. What days do you play?
