Backgammon is one of those classical board games that are easy to learn but difficult to master. Playing against the computer might not be the best way, but it sure as hell beats playing against yourself.
For all who might not know how to play backgammon, there’s the rulebook included, but it’s really quite easy and you’ll learn as you play. Now the real game has many variations which add to the game’s depth, but here there’s only the basic game.
There are also the backgammon in-game rules, which explain how you can play this computerized version, but not the actual game.
This computer adaptation is very simple and features no sounds and only the basic graphics. The pieces you move are represented by X and the computer pieces are Os. The spaces you can move to are represented by numbers and the dice roll automatically.
I guess that all you need to know about this game. It looks and feels basic only, but it does offer a simple game of backgammon (and I do mean simple, because the computer AI is not really good).
Not really recommended, unless you wish to learn and practice a basic game.
Dear Abandonia visitors: We are a small team that runs one of the largest DOS Games websites in the world. We have only 3 members of staff, but serve 450,000 users and have outgoing costs like any other top site for example: our servers, power, rent, programs, and staff. Abandonia is something special. It is a library of old games for you to download. It is like an old gaming arcade with all the old games in their original format. Abandonia is a place where you can find great old games and have fun four hours and years. To protect our independence, we are dependent of our friends using the site. We run on donations averaging around 6 USD (5 Euro). If everyone reading this gave the price of a cup of coffee, our fundraiser would be made easier. If Abandonia is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online for another year. Please help us forget fundraising and get back to Abandonia.
