Beginner Level Players

By the end of the session the student will understand the rules of play, the basic strategy and some key concepts that will start them on the path to becoming respectable players. Our goal is not only to teach beginners  rules and strategy, but to instill an appreciation of the intellectual stimulation and pure fun of the game so that they, like us, will want to continue their interest in the game and become a part of the backgammon community.

Take-Away Materials
A checklist of exercises and study material such as power points, and articles to improve which will be customized to some extent for each student.   A list of sites to play and learn on line.   Laptops and IPads will be permitted for students to take notes throughout  the sessions. No recording devices will be permitted.

*NEW PLAYERS*

 All players attending at the Beginner’s level will need to know the rudiment of playing.  If you don’t, please go to YouTube where you’ll find many videos on the fundamentals.
