Nackgammon Grand Prix
Nackgammon, originally devised by top American player Nack Ballard, was introduced into the Bristol calendar in 2009, when a couple of dedicated Nackgammon evenings were held.
So for 2010 three tournaments were scheduled, forming a Nackgammon Grand prix mini series.
The three tournaments increased to four in 2012, but a lack of interest caused the event to be discontinued thereafter.
Nackgammon is just like ordinary backgammon, except for the starting positions of the checkers, with a man each from the five and thirteen points moved back to the twenty-three point. This means greater contact, typically leading to longer and more complex games, affording players the opportunity to practice back games and playing against back games.
