First, to everyone who views this weekly blog (about the GREATEST game in the world, bar none…sorry roulette), I wish you a most happy New Year and many hours of successful playing, whether on a real board in a club or in an online casino.
Backgammon really is the coming “big thing,” and I plan to document this explosion of interest during the rest of this year and many years to come.
There must be a reason why the game has transcended generations. Hell, since the Persian Empire.
Because it’s cool. And it’s always been cool.
Now, there are many online casino sites that offer a myriad of games, from poker to casino slots to backgammon…and one of the things I do on a regular basis is test drive backgammon sites and report back on the ones that I like.
I LOVE the idea that I can play virtually, don’t you?
This post is about players and strategies and where to play. We often run strategy posts, so check them out. But for beginners reading this blog, I urge you to FIND out how to play. And many online casinos and backgammon sites show you how.
Yeah, there is a certain level of skill required to play online. You need to know strategies. Probabilities. In order to be successful.
Play, in the beginning, at your level of skill.
And have fun.
Of course, there are ways to make money. Hell, that’s part of the fun.
For all you beginners, you might want to check out MSN Games…just google it…and play.
Right now, for example…. on Jan. 7, 9 a.m., there are close to 600 people playing.
It’s a good place to hone your skills.
