By GammonSoft Free to try

Developer's Description

Ready for a new version of backgammon, made especially for OS X. Try this attractive and easy to use version of the game. Has many features including 5 different methods to move the pieces including your voice, 5 skill levels for all levels of play and, along with the default board, there are more than 32 attractive boards to choose. Now has a Tutor mode that can help you increase your playing skills much faster. Can be played using English, German, French, Spanish, Dutch or Italian. Uses speech and also works with OS 8 and 9 (requires CarbonLib). For those concerned that the dice rolls might not be random, the game has an option to save the dice rolls, to be used in the game, to a file in the game folder before the game starts. There is also and option to ask if you want to use your dice rolls or the computer's dice rolls. With these 2 options selected, even the most skeptical can be assured that the game is not cheating. Also, you can check the stats that the game keeps to assure you that the dice rolls are random and not favoring either player.
