Get Back(gammon)

Hey, you, low-stakes gambler and ancient-board-game aficionado. A $10 buy-in puts you in the running to make 90 percent of an optional side pool (in addition to other prize money) if you’re the highest placed entrant at one of the backgammon events sponsored by the Kansas City Backgammon Club. The five-year-old group rolls the dice every Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. at the Granfalloon Bar & Grill (608 Ward Parkway, 816-753-7850). For more information, see
