Mac Backgammon Boost
December 31, 2008 (InfoPowa News) — According to MacUpdate, software provider Gammonsoft's latest version of its Absolute Backgammon product has all the bells and whistles, including voice control and a choice of skins.
Retailing for $25, Absolute Backgammon has superb graphics, sound effects, speech, and many options and features including five skill levels for a fun game of backgammon, claims MacUpdate.
Version 6.1.1 supports game play in English, Spanish, German, French, Italian, and Dutch, and works with Leopard and Intel Macs, providing a variety of game boards to enable the player to choose that best suited to his or her preferences. All of the dice rolls used in the game can be selected to be saved to a file at the start of a new game for players wanting to keep an eye on fairness, and the stats kept by the game provide additional reference material.
Somewhat uninformatively, the update advises that Gammonsoft has fixed " … 2 rare problems that would never affect most players!"
