Backgammon is a computer adaptation of the board game. It's for one player who competes against an AI opponent. The game uses text based graphics with asterisks and pluses representing the checkers. The game is played with the keyboard. First the player enters the letter of the starting point and then the destination point. The player is allowed to cheat which means that the checkers can be moved forward in any way regardless of what the dice show. There are no limits on number of moves or length of each move. Once all moves have been made the space bar is pressed and the AI will make its moves.
