The Ever Expanding World of Internet Backgammon
Backgammon has been played for centuries. But now, thanks to internet backgammon, its
popularity is soaring. There are hundreds, maybe thousands, of WebPages and software
providing online backgammon. You can choose to download some software or play over your
browser. Internet backgammon can be played with pretend or real money and against virtual
or real opponents.
At most sites downloading online backgammon should be very straightforward. A large
fronted, brightly coloured tab will usually be easily visible. By pressing on this, you
will either be directed to a download page or the download will begin automatically. For
anyone with an ADSL connection, the download time will be short, so you start playing
internet backgammon in literally a minute. Some sites will ask you to register. Again,
this is normally a very quick and easy process.
For those people who don't want to download, but still want to play, internet
backgammon is readily available over your browser. In a few seconds, a java or flash based
application will appear on your computer screen. Like with downloadable versions, you may
or may not have to register, depending on the site. With a quick search of the web,
browser based online backgammon can be played, offering you all the services of the
downloadable versions. Win real or pretend money against real or pretend opponents. (Of
course, you cannot win real money against a virtual opponent).
So there's nothing stopping you, no matter what time of the day or night it is. Whether
you are beginner or an expert, there is always an opponent waiting in the ever expanding
world of internet backgammon.
