Snowie Backgammon– This is another fine commercial program using neural network technology to power its playing and evaluation abilities. The Snowie user interface is excellent, as is the documentation, providing smooth access to many useful features. Although the full-featured Snowie 4 Professional is rather pricey at $365, smaller editions are available at prices down to $35. Download a trial version and read more at Snowie BG.

Free Software – No longer available

Gnu Backgammon–A great program from the GNU Project, with neural network technology providing excellent playing and analytic abilities. Its main drawback is that the user interface is less intuitive than that of either Snowie or ExtremeGammon. Its main attraction is its price: absolutely free! Many top players have used GNU.
