American Backgammon Players Association
A real battle of wits and strategy! It's you against the computer in this test of imagination, skill, and luck!

Here's a game you can win if you're good, and improve your play and sharpen your skills whether you win or lose!

You vs. the computer! You make a play and computer counters with a move! Who will win?
