1981 CATALOG DESCRIPTION

Beating Intellivision at backgammon is a lot of fun. But it's definitely not child's play.

The computer knows all the tricks -- and it calculates all the odds before it moves.

Can you find a flaw in its strategy? Can you give it pieces to gobble up freely, then trap it in the back game? Or will you just cross your fingers, press the button and roll the dice?

Perfect your own backgammon skills with this modem version of one of the world's oldest games.

  • Dice rolled randomly
  • "Pip count" appears on screen
  • Licensed by the American Backgammon Players Association


PRODUCTION NOTES was one of the original four games introduced with Intellivision when it was test marketed in 1979.


The program code was recycled in the Triple Challenge cartridge released by INTV Corporation.
