Online Backgammon

6 replies • Last post

Ok, I saw the news story here and had to ask:

Online backgammon? Seriously? Does anyone know where you can play this, and does anyone actually play it? I mean someone must be if Betfair is sponsoring a league, but SERIOUSLY?!?

What is next, checkers?

In all honesty, I can't even remember how to play backgammon. It was the one game that was always left in the classroom when we had indoor recess because of rain. I just find it surprising that it is being compared to poker.

What do you think

Checkers...haha!

I used to love to play Backgammon when it first came out! People played in bars, etc., and it was very popular. However, ONLINE Backgammon sounds extremely boring to me! I don't believe I could stay awake long enough to play: it would not hold my interest.

You are right: checkers, chinese checkers? Maybe Candyland, too? lol

I have never actually learned to play Backgammon, but its something I have wanted to try. Apparently there is a bit of skill involved even though it looks like luck due to the dice.

Always play it safe! Consult our list of rogue casinos and warnings before depositing at a new casino.

According to the article it apparently matches the skill of poker. Maybe after you take it up you and I could get into competitive crocheting online.

Also, it is a very easy game to learn.

A better idea - lets launch a player vs player competitive casino war site. It will make us hundredaires!
