If you…

…are willing to take an oath that you have NEVER rolled double sixes – except from THE BAR!! You might be a backgammon player.

…have ever thrown the dice into a hotel bathroom from across the room during a full consulting chouette.  You might be a backgammon player.

…have ever been heard to “give up this f****** game forever”.  Then immediately gotten online to register for a tournament in Uzbekistan.  You might be a backgammon player.

…have ever asked your girlfriend to sleep wrapped in a tablecloth in a corner of the Starlight Room of an Airport Hilton because, “the chouette isn’t over honey and I already checked us out of the room”.  You might be a backgammon player.

…have position cards – and I don’t mean the kind of positions discussed in the Kama Sutra – you might be a backgammon player.

…think discussing the above-mentioned position cards is more fun and interesting than practicing the positions in the Kama Sutra.  You might be a backgammon player.

…buttonhole total strangers in hotel bars to tell them about the time your opponent “ROLLED DOUBLE SIXES SEVEN TIMES IN A FREAKING ROW IN THE FREAKING BEAROFF!*!”  to win the match.  You might be a backgammon player.

…only rollout the positions that you know will lower your rating.  You might be a backgammon player.

…you ever taken a pipcount before dropping “just to get your money’s worth”.  You might be a backgammon player.

…know how to take a pipcount and think it’s fun.  You ARE a backgammon player.
