Gammoner™ Backgammon BoardsI will always remember the Nordic Open 2008. It was my first international backgammon tournament success, as I reached the semi-finals of the advanced flight. But also besides this it was a very interesting event with a lot of absorbing discussions and many new acquaintances made. Among other things I met Volker Wenzlaff for the first time. He may be known to some of you already as the manufacturer of the Gammoner™ backgammon boards.
Improve Your BackgammonYou can play backgammon a whole life long without ever asking yourself whether a specific move or cube decision was correct or wrong and still enjoy the game. Such a player, however, will never be able to win a major backgammon tournament or reach a top rating on a backgammon server in the internet.
History of BackgammonThe history of backgammon is not solved yet and probably never will be. In particular tracing the development of backgammon through the different variants of board games back to its real origins is nearly impossible.
Play Backgammon OnlineUnfortunately there are much less backgammon players than chess players for instance. Therefore it's not easy to find players for live play in your town. Playing in the internet is a good alternative to live play, in order to excercise your ability of tournament and match play.
Revisit of the Ward Formula by Nigel MerriganIn the space of 24 hours, I had two meetings planned, one with a certain Miss. Stella Artois and the other with a World Class thoroughbred; no, not the ante-post favourite at 2.45 Cheltenham, but rather with the going is good Mr. Julian Fetterlein.
