Backgammon in Bern / Burgdorf

Hi guy's.

I'm looking for a casual backgammon partner in the Bern Burgdorf area. If anyone here plays and isn't too far from here I'd love to hear from you!

I loved playing Backgammon a couple of years back, haven't done it in a while now though. We should do it sometime!

Re: Backgammon in Bern / Burgdorf

I like playing backgammon too, but I'm based in Zurich. Would that be too far for you?

Anyone interested in playing it on a tablet? Doesn't have the same clack of a wooden board, but it is easier to set up and keep to the rules...

Re: Backgammon in Bern / Burgdorf

I play backgammon online.
Problem is I beat the computer most times - now, took me a while of course - even at "expert-level" what ever that is supposed to be. That's not so much fun anymore.

I think one problem is, that the places I can move to are highlighted the moment I click on a possible row to move from. That can't be turned off. (The suggestion before chosing a start point can be turned off).

Anyone knows free backgammmon games online where this is not the case? Where there are no pointers at all?

I know. I've been on several (don't really remember them). Can I just say all those where the highlighting can't be turned off?
