bacKgammon is the direct successor of KFibs. the latter was a program for playing backgammon games on the first internet backgammon server (FIBS). bacKgammon is an almost complete rewrite of KFibs to fix some of the most obvious problems:

play modes

usage of bacKgammon does not require a connection to the Internet, nor does it require an account on FIBS. You can use the program to play backgammon against yourself (which might become boring after a while) or against friends by using the offline engine.

in the very near future, bacKgammon will be extended such that it can use gnubg as a backgammon engine. At that point you will be able to play against gnubg using the same program that can be used to connect to FIBS and to play offline - one program for all the backgammon needs you might have.
