Online Backgammon

Playing online

The following 3 websites are recommended:

Two other recommended sites for portable devices are:

Backgammon NJ:

GNU Backgammon:


Most other backgammon playing sites, by comparison, are feeble.


Playing for money

Many online backgammon websites are not looked upon as safe.

Generally, it is best to tread very carefully, using only websites recommended by backgammon players known to you.  Also, never play for large sums of money because you could be playing against several players or even against a player using a software system like XG.
