I have been working on a backgammon game the last couple of weeks; finally, I have a playable version. I will consider this the beta version. I don't know of any errors; however, the AI is not very great. You can play it here. Before you play, know that the set of die on the right is the set that you just rolled. Second, click on the point that you want to move from to make a move. Last, make sure that you have Javascript enabled on your browser. I am going to continue working on it to make a few improvements. Namely, I am going to highlight the previous move and improve the AI opponent's evaluation function. I hope you enjoy it. If you have suggestions for improvement, please leave a comment underneath this post.

  2. You are correct; I still have to improve it a lot. Thanks for commenting; you have the distinct honor of having the first comment on my blog.
