Yeah, you read that right. I'm breaking down Backgammon for the Atari 2600 and you are going to like it. No. You are going to LOVE it. Don't chicken out now, click the link


Thanks for the review! I learned to play backgammon on the VCS! Nukey Shay even did a hack for me that make the computer pieces move faster. I like the set-up option and set the board to play Nackgammon, where two of each players pieces are relocated to the opposing 23 point! I picked up an eight player version of backgammon on E-Bay awhile back, I'll have to post a pick of it. One last thing, Craig Nelson was the programmer for this game, and it was the only one he did for Atari, but he went on to greater fame, he started Starpath, the company that built the SuperCharger for the 2600!
