Backgammon

Any players in Pattaya? If we have enough, we could have a small tournament

I would be wary about creating a 'small tournament' in case the police think it is a gambling den.....lol

i like backgammon but it is at heart a gambling game and convincing plod that you are only playing for points would be a challenge.

the bridge club players saga is still dragging on and if bridge is considered a problem.......................

I recently downloaded a backgammon app that you can play others on line, very good and only "play" money

Are all games in Thailand considered to be "gambling" games ? 

 

Do Thais play games ?

 

Playing games is a part of "childhood".

 

Is "Snakes and Ladders" considered a "gambling" game ?

 

Is "Chess" allowed ?

 

I know "Connect 4" is played, but is it legal ?

 

I love playing backgammon, and would really welcome playing on a regular basis, but will not if it puts me vulnerable to arrest. 

 

Maybe a legal boffin here would know the legal answer. I hope so.

Yeah I guess it is not worth the effort here. Have to wait till they legalize casinos. Lol

I think if you meet a few people and have casual games over a few beers (not in public) you will be OK. Just don't organise an open tournament.

i spoke to 1 of the 31 (one has passed away) wed night and the case is still dragging on

Please update on what happens in the future to the 31.  I would love to know how the authorities get out of this one and save face at the same time.

I THINK (not sure)... but even having playing cards is considered illegal .... have you seen them being sold anywhere?

 

They play chess at Central Mall some days..

still going on but i'm told somebody on the prosecution side has died which may make things easier to be quietly forgotten

 

 

 

the bridge club is back playing again using gov approved cards which come with a red stamp of some sort on them

I haven't played for ages, but I would be game.  Again provided that it was not a bridge club situation like has been mentioned above.

What difference dose the cards make?

playing cards sold in thailand according to some archaic law from the 1940's are supposed to come with an official stamp on them so the 100 or so packs the club had got seized

    • Hi Guys

      As many of you know we have been running now for 16 years and apart from one brief time when we were allowed PayPal, so could use the inbuilt donation function, we have tried to avoid asking for donations. We have certainly avoided being in anyones face about it.

      Sadly that has now changed.

      The forum currently costs around $900 a month to operate. That includes Bangkok and Philippines but PA makes up the vast majority of it. This fee covers forum hosting, image hosting, notification emails and support.

      Before anyone says "its expensive" please be aware we have tried for years to find better for cheaper - it just doesn't exist for the size we are. Also a lot of hosts wont Touch us anyway. Our current host is actually cheaper than the previous one but that brings its own problems.

      Moving on -

      I would like to stress there is NO obligation whatsoever. Also, whatever happens the forum is going no-where!

      Donators can CHOOSE to have their donation listed (probably in this thread or we can make a new one) or to remain anonymous. Likewise they can CHOOSE whether the amount is published or not.

      There is no minimum, or maximum for that matter. ANY donation will be very gratefully received. We are very aware that many members are also having it tough these days.

      We are still unable to promote/post PayPal addresses etc on the forum so would ask that anyone who would like to make a donation to PM me, or ask me here to PM you and we will sort out details via that PM.
