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.

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.

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