Same here! Can any of you who've been here a bit longer tell me if there's a way to reverse the board?

Subject: backgammon

its all backwards for me... needs to be set up like the boards set up at gt... lol

Please be patient, I cannot do everything at once.

THANKS FOR BACKGAMMON. While your fixing things, bigger dice please.

Subject: More than meets the eye...
Reversing the boards would be nice...but for Nackgammon, the board is bearing in the wrong direction no matter how the board is playing.
In the starting setup, the four pips in spaces 1 and 2, and 23 and 24 should have to move around the whole board before they are at "home". They are currently set up so that they are ready to be "beared" off.

Subject: The boards.....
I actually really like the colour of the boards & dont have a problem with seeing the black counters, it is confusing playing upside down though, but after having a couple of games Im actually getting used to it! lol Fencer thanks so much for installing backgammon & I know you'll sort the minor details in time! :o) lol

how about swapping dice order?

I see black men on a purple pip, no problem

11. January 2003, 08:48:52
About Nackgammon - it is pretty possible, I've just got a start position picture somewhere and maybe it is not correct. I'll fix it.
Dice swapping - click on "Swap dice" link under the board.
Lobster: Hey, I didn't know about this rule! Thanks. I'll fix it.

Stingeroni is right. The start position is correct but the men go the wrong way. It's hilarious!

Subject: Re: doubles on first move
You are right....if doubles are thrown when each player throws one die to determine who goes first.....the die is rolled again by each player.
Doubles should never be the first roll.

We didn't even move yet and said other opponent won.

LOL...with an attitude like yours lobster, I think we'll all gladly roll out the red carpet...right out the front door. :)

On my games, it is just below the board. It says Points: XX

Subject: are we going to get a cube
I started a 5pt game expecting to see the doubling cube...ahhhhhh now I find I have to play 5 games instead (too late to delete) I also would like to know if a gammon is going to count in a 5pt game? LOL or do I just have to play and find out?

18. January 2003, 12:58:04

Subject: Re: are we going to get a cube
I think it is safe to assume you are playing 5 single point games - no cube, no gammons.

Subject: Stingeroni Classic Backgammon Tourney I
I have also started a backgammon tourney. No limit to the number of players. Anyone from Brain Pawn membership and up can play. It starts tomorrow (20th), so hurry and sign in if you'd like to play. This will be a regular tournament, with a new one starting at regular intervals (to be determined yet).

Fencer, Thanks for getting the boards "right".
Now, how about the dice size?

21. January 2003, 11:22:12
Will be done. Soon :-)

Subject: Re: Dice
While you're at it. :o)
You always roll your dice onto your right-hand half of the board, which means your opponent's dice are always on the left.

Subject: Nackgammon Tournament
I started a nackgamon tournament with 3 days time out, and nobody has signed up :(
This is my first one, and hopefully not my last. So if you like nackgammon, or backgammon and want to try something a lil different, please come play. Sign ups end on the 27th..everyone is welcome :):)

if the points at the bottom of the anti game is supposed to be the number of pips's not right....i had a game that i hit a players piece and instead of the piece adding 5 points to their score it added mean that's 2 full boards of pips....i don't usually play by the points anyway but i just noticed it...kinda gave me a good chuckle...:)

Subject: Pip Count
There seems to be a bug in the pip count when there is a man on the bar. It looks like he is counted twice giving a count 25 too high.

24. January 2003, 09:37:20
I would like to know how I should count the points correctly, can you help me? :-)

24. January 2003, 09:38:35
And what is the correct value for a man on the bar?

24. January 2003, 17:20:16
Mike UK 
Subject: Re: Pip Count
Each man on the bar should add 25 to the pip count.

24. January 2003, 22:27:41
is there any way to lighten the background? i can hardly see the black tiles, and the dice are hard to see. thx. for fixing the direction of the boards.

25. January 2003, 10:51:55
Later. Working on 10 features at the same time [including this one].
