Colorado Backgammon League

CONGRATULATIONS – CHARLIE RAICHLE
2021 COLORADO BACKGAMMON
PLAYER OF THE YEAR

The Colorado Backgammon League is intended to add an additional incentive to regular weekly, monthly and invitational tournament play. This league is entirely volunteer with personal commitments to making this a fantastic experience, while working towards growing the backgammon community. League tournaments are played both at live venues and online. Online tournaments are played on Backgammon Studio Heroes Server 3. All Tournament play requires USBGF membership. Tournament rules governing play are posted on the USBGF website. The league director reserves the right to modify league rules, team representation and player of the year nominations.

League Rules: You must be a Colorado resident to participate in league scoring. League play occurs LIVE on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays and ONLINE on the 4th Saturday of each month. The format is progressive consolation, with 7-9 point matches for the main, 5-7 point matches for the consolation. League play, including alternate tournaments and scoring, may be modified, at the discretion of the director.

Check out Meetup for dates, times and locations of all league events.

Winner Determination: The Colorado Backgammon League Champion will be based on the Colorado Player that has earned the most Points as of December 31, 2022, as determined by the Colorado Backgammon League Scoring, beginning January 2, 2022 and continuing throughout the year.  Point totals will reset each year on January 1.

Accolades: 2022 Colorado League Champion will receive a custom Doubling Cube, free entry into the 2023 Wild West Shootout (side pool and reg. fee not included) and nominated as Colorado Player of the Year (and included in PrimeTime Backgammon in the Winter 2023 issue).
