Top Ten Backgammon Sites

The Top Ten
1 Backgammon Shop

Loads of backgammon books, more than anywhere else. The books are graded according to the level, which is a great help. There are also descriptions of what the books are about. They are quick to ship and have very reasonable shipping prices.

Best selection of precision dice anywhere, and they don't charge for shipping. They also have really cheap backgammon boards, and some very nice expensive ones - which I will have to save up for. I will be back!

They have precision backgammon dice with round corners, which are just perfect for ASL. There is a great selection of sizes and colors. I prefer the 1/2" which roll best. They don't charge shipping if you buy four or more - sweet deal.

4 First Internet Backgammon Server

Played on this for years. Used to love it. Always had tons of people on it. Now, there are never more than a dozen available players, and none of them ever want to play! They are just waiting for a specific player to join. I have a very high rating. It sucks!

It seems you need to have some sort of plugin to play on a Mac. I've no idea what's required. The instructions on page one aren't too clear, so I guess I'll pass on this site.


Great site - quality updated mobile backgammon, etc., for iOS and Android. Also, very nice new non-Java browser-based backgammon - works well even on my iPhone Safari browser.

Great competition and always someone in the world available to play. Play is smooth and quick.

It's fun to play with people across the globe. I like tournaments at GameColony, and the new fast social login is excellent.

6 Board Game Central

Lots of valuable info on the board game Backgammon: Software, information, rules, and links.

7 Gammon Village
8 The Nevada Backgammon Association

Organizers of backgammon tournaments in the United States.


Carol Cole runs a long-aspiring and one of the best backgammon clubs in the US. It keeps things current and is always a joy to view for the real BG addict. This club is one of the tops in promoting the great game of backgammon, which is one of the oldest games ever invented, going back to the Egyptian tombs.

I started the Texas Backgammon Association in 1978, and the Flint Club and Carol were among the first during the backgammon boom in the US, where many nightclubs had backgammon boards and tournaments everywhere, and the game filtered down from the private country clubs.

Always promoting the game I love,
