Tuesdays in London

Backgammon in the City of London at

The Three Lords, Minories, London, EC3N 1DE

Play starts as soon as we get 8 players after 6PM in the downstairs room and continues throughout the evening. If you are hungry, they have pizza and pasta with prices from £8.50.

We will run 7 point Swiss tournaments with an optional pool. Other games such as knockouts and round robins are also played.

Everyone Welcome

Everyone is welcome to come along from beginners to experts. We have a friendly and welcoming environment in a traditional pub situated in the financial district of London. We do ask you to buy something from the bar as we need to keep the landlord happy.

Parking is difficult and we recommend you use public transport.

Our Mission

As regular players, our aim is to have a fun filled evening with as many games as you want to play between 6-11pm.

Always remember that backgammon is a fun game and to respect the people you play.

All games are played in accordance with the UKBGF rules. Matches will count towards your UKBGF rating.

What is a Swiss

Eight people play three rounds each. One person wins three rounds and three people win two rounds. At City Gammon we play either a variable stake where your prize is in proportion to your stake, or a fixed stake where the winner receives 3 times their stake back and the three runners up receive 1½ times their stake each.
