Does anyone here play?
I do not play backgammon online but I am fond of winning against most real life opponents.
I learned how to play backgammon when I was a teenager. My teacher was good at backgammon, and she was a good teacher. Perhaps she taught too well though, once I had her lessons down she seldom won another game when playing against me.
Anyway, I just bring this up to contribute to the recreation part of your new forum, Walt. And to see if anyone else plays, I am fond of a good game of backgammon with a worthy opponent.
I don't use the doubling cube though, I am not into gambling. For me, recreation does not cost someone a fortune, whether it is my fortune or someone else's.
