GreedyGammon is a new online backgammon server (for MS Windows)

--Home Page http://greedygammon.com --Support/discussion forum http://greedygammon.com/support

--tested on XP, Vista Win7-64) from the author of the FIBS clients 3DFiBs / FIBzilla. GreedyGammon Backgammon offers the following features->

--Bot matches 1-13 pts against the gnubg house bot "GreedyG" (no waiting all bots always ready)

--Player vs player matches with any members or guests currently logged in

--Watch an existing match in progress.

--Lobby and table chat in any language (Unicode character support)

--Rated matches (Using the FIBS rating formula)

--Professional quality update manager keeps program up to date with latest ver.

--A PHPBB forum with usernames linked to the player screen names is available for announcements discussions etc..

--Current dropper policy is as follows..

-Dropped bot games will resume until completed

-Dropped player vs player game awards the win immediately to the opponent

(this policy will be further enhanced in future versions to

allow players option to wait for dropper to return.

--there are currently only a handful of active users but bots are always ready to administer a world class thrashing.

Log in as "guest" to try it out. If you like it create a user account in the forum and the program will read your forum username/password to create your new player account. Please don't go crazy with usernames... letters, numbers, underscore only. NO (.)!

This software is the culmination of many years of backgammon development with the FIBS clients, the offline player and now the server client package. ALL bugs reprted in earlier version have been fixed. I have racked up over 10k exper points on it myself and I am confident it is functioning good enough to offer it publicly. Thanks to all my early users who stuck with it and offered feedback and encouragement. If any glitches are encountered, please report in the contact form or the forum.

thank you,
