Tournament Rules

The Atlanta Northside Backgammon Club is an affiliated club of the United States Backgammon Federation and uses USBGF Official Rules for tournament play, although local rules in some areas supersede USBGF rules. Matches use a 2-minute per point timebank with a 10-second delay. New players unfamiliar with the the clock use a modified clock with a 3-minute per point timebank with a 10-second delay. Penalty points assessed to players arriving late are on a 5-1 basis (for every 5 minutes late, 1 point is awarded to the opponent). The club also adheres to the USBGF Standards of Ethical Practice.
