(posted this on rec.games.backgammon but apparently everyone is in this forum these days)
For various reasons I haven't been active in bg forums for five years or more but I see many of the oldtimers are still here.
All the bots made Backgammon a bit boring so some time ago I needed something that would change that. The result can be found below. So far everyone trying it have had a blast (even the most conservative people). Some reasoning and other fun stuff can be found using the link (but quote if you reply to stuff from that one).
Requirements: 1 d10 dice (dice with 10 sides instead of 6), preferably per player
Rule changes: A player rolls one 1d6 and one 1d10 dice. At start both players roll the 1d6 dice.
Clarifications: Your home still consists of 6 points. Bearing off is not allowed until all your men are in your home. Coming in from the bar is only allowed into your opponents home.
Full rules/comments/Q&A etc at
(I'll repost two more posts after this)
