Welcome to the 2018 edition of Backgammon. Featuring a faster and smoother user interface along with a stronger state of the art artificial intelligence engine, the 2018 edition celebrates 15 years of ZingMagic bringing you the best in board, card and puzzle games.
Backgammon is a simple race game. The object is to move the pieces around the board towards your inner table. Once all 15 of your pieces have arrived in the inner table, they can be removed from the board. The first player to remove all his pieces from the board is the winner. Although the play is highly skilful, the fact that the moves rely on the roll of the dice introduces an element of luck allowing even a novice to win the odd game against a world champion.
Backgammon has been played throughout the world for thousands of years. ZingMagic's version of Backgammon enables you to play this most popular of board games to a high standard anytime, anywhere. With clean crisp graphics and a powerful game play engine ensuring your game is a competitive one regardless of ability, time will literally appear to fly by with ZingMagic's incarnation of the classic game of Backgammon.
