Downloading and installing GNU Backgammon

You can get GNU Backgammon precompiled binaries for several systems. Thanks to our downstream maintainers - GNU Backgammon is available on a variety of the latest GNU/Linux based distributions including Debian, Arch, Ubuntu, OpenSUSE, Mageai, and Fedora. If you can't find packages for your distribution you can build from the sources available through CVS or a tarball.

Apple Mac OS/X 10.5.x and later require the latest version of X11/Xquartz to already be installed to run properly. XQuartz can be downloaded from here. Please see the README1ST file inside the DMG for more installation information.
