Backgammon  

This is one of the earliest Backgammon videogame along with the Channel F Backgammon released the year before (1977).

There are two game variations:
- two players game
- play against the computer

This is an important point: to be able to play against the computer. In 1978 it was not that common.

The graphics are quite decent for such an early version.



 SOFTWARE RELATIONS:

    Backgammon is related to Backgammon / Acey-Deucy (Fairchild Channel F)
