Please Bring a Set!



Two well-established Backgammon Clubs with long histories and a new Meetup Group meet regularly in the Washington, D.C. area and a club meets monthly in Columbia, MD.



We follow a  set of tournament rules  established by the American Backgammon Tour and widely adopted by the Nation's Backgammon clubs.



For our main tournaments we meet at a very nice sports bar in Timonium, MD first established  as caterer to famous rock bands: Hightopps Backstage Grille.



We have adopted a tournament format which guarantees each entrant two matches, although not necessarily two losses.

Welcome to our  Backgammon club!

 THE Baltimore Backgammon Club, has been in continuous operation since May 2007.  Although not directly connected with the former Backgammon Club of Baltimore, an enormously successful club which operated for years during Backgammon's heyday in the 1970's and 80's, we have several members from that former club among our current membership.  Our tournaments are open to players of all skill levels.
