More about GNU Backgammon

It's available for users with the operating system Windows 98 and previous versions, and it is available in English. The game version is 0.14.3 and it has been updated on 7/07/2005.

About the download, GNU Backgammon is a light game that takes up less storage space than many games in the section PC games. It's a very popular game in United States, United Kingdom, and Turkey.

Since the game was added to our catalog in 2005, it has managed to achieve 75,885 downloads, and last week it achieved 9 downloads.

It is currently a work-in-progress. So far it is able to play both independent games and tournament matches, evaluate and roll out positions, tune its own evaluation functions using either TD or supervised training, maintain databases of positions for training and other purposes, and more. See the following section for a more complete list.

It is driven by a command-line interface, and displays an ASCII rendition of a board on text-only terminals, but also allows the user to play games and manipulate positions.

It currently plays at about the level of a championship flight tournament player and is gradually improving; it should be somewhat stronger than this when released. GNU Backgammon can be played at numerous other online backgammon servers.
