    Hello,

    I'm looking for a good backgammon game for Mac.
    The ones I found by now was very poor graphically and/or too expensive for a game like this.

    Does anybody can recommend a good backgammon game for Mac?

    Thank you

    I too have been looking for a decent Backgammon game for Mac. No luck either, you I did find were for pre-OS X and not good. I still play humans if I can find someone who likes to play. I have been playing this game for 30+ years, love it.

    Sorry for bumping an old thread, but I'm also looking for a good backgammon for Mac. I did a quick search and found these options.

    Backgammon Online: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/backgammon-online/id514573330?mt=12

    Backgammon Masters: http://itunes.apple.com/en/app/masters-of-backgammon/id497780452?mt=12

    Backgammon Deluxe: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/backgammon-deluxe!/id457037413?mt=12

    I personally prefer backgammon masters, but that is because I play it on iphone. I have tried backgammon online and it is good, too. NJ backgammon is good, but not sure if there is a mac version. If anyone has some other good app, please recommend! Thank you!

    I've been looking for one too...

    There is GNU Backgammon... not the prettiest, but apparently the AI is very good so try it out if you want a challenge. (Personally, I'm not a good enough backgammon player to know the difference yet between good and bad AI! :p)
