We are thrilled to announce that Masayuki “Mochy” Mochizuki (#1 Giant of Backgammon 2013-2014) will be presenting the 5th backgammon proficiency test starting at 11:00 am on Thursday, August 6th – the third day of the 40th Backgammon World Championship.

Mochy and Michihito “Michy” Kageyama (#2 Giant 2013-2014) supervised 50 high-quality and well-balanced questions for the test. Thus, it is a worthy challenge for players at the intermediate and advanced levels.

It’s been a year since the 4th proficiency test took place in Monte Calro last August, and then we renew it this May, so this is supposed to be the very first chance for most of you to take it.
Now, here is a great news for you!
We decided to award a special gold-lacquer (Japanese traditional Kin-makie) board to a highest scorer in Monte Calro. This custom-ordered board is the only one in the whole world.
