Current Version: 3.0 r6 / 4.5.3 (June 15, 2001)

A Free Internet Backgammon Server (FIBS) client for the Macintosh, and a beautiful piece of work at that. Version 4.5.3 addresses the following:

User Reviews

"This game by far is the most entertaining way to spend a few hours on the Net playing Backgammon. The interface is easy to configure and playing is very realistic, coupled with sound effects and the ability to chat with your opponents from all around the globe. Beware: the game is highly addictive and the hours just fly by. Nothing so far that I have come across beats MacFIBS."

Also, if you have an older Mac, be sure to check out the "Classic" applications page for more options.

Finally, take a look at ALEMIA if you think you know that name of an application, but aren't quite sure.

Of Note . . .

No, I don't accept reviews anymore for these older applications. With the creation of this page in the Orchard's late 2005 redesign, I only accept reviews for currently-developed applications that work on Mac OS X (or later....whatever that might be!!).
