26 Mar 2015 - by Phil Simborg and Stick

We have two kinds of competitions in our Chicago chouette: first is simply the game itself, and it is a tough game. We're all seasoned, Open players and many of us have 30 or 40 years of experience playing in chouettes.

20 Aug 2014 - by Mary Hickey

XG and other backgammon programs frequently ding their human clients for small missed doubles. Players concerned about their PR ("Performance Rating") will be especially worried if they get dinged several times in a row for these missed doubles during a game or match.
