The NEBC is a longstanding Boston-area club for playing backgammon. We encourage players of all experience levels to join us monthly on Sundays to compete in one of two tournament brackets (Open / Advanced), or simply to come and get acquainted, learn the rules, and observe some world-class backgammon action in a friendly setting.

This year we are moving to a new location and a new day:

NEBC has returned to SUNDAY tournaments!

2310 Massachusetts Ave
Cambridge, MA 02140

Frank's is a short 7 minute walk from the Davis Square T Station (or 15 mins from the Porter Square T / commuter rail stop). If you are driving, Frank's has a parking lot right behind the establishment, off Rice Street. If it should fill up, you may park across the street at the Century Bank lot, or around the next corner to the north (Norris Strret) behind Verna's cafe. Unrestricted street parking is also plentiful on Sundays.

To ensure a place in the draw, players must arrive by 12:15. Please bring a board if you can.

Your entry in the tournament comes with a $5 restaurant credit, so please order food and drink liberally during your visit so that we remain welcome patrons of Frank's. Tell the server you are with the club and settle up your own tab (Total cost + Tax + Tip - $5.00) with the tournament director before leaving.
