  Excalibur LCD Backgammon
The controls state: ON, MODE, HINT, LEVEL, SCORE, DECLINE, SELECT, OPTIONS, ACCEPT, DOUBLE, TAKEBACK, NEW GAME, and OFF.

All this in an area about 2 inches square and you are playing Backgammon where ever you like against the computer. It requires 3 alkaline AAA batteries and I have played at least 30 games so far and the batteries are still like new.

Although it takes strategy to play Back Gammon, it also has a modicum of chance because of the dice and so winning against the computer is a 50/50 chance and with strategy, the odds are even better. Out of 10 games that I counted, I won seven times.

The casing for this game is plastic but it does feel nice to hold which is important if you play with it for a few hours. The screen is not backlit so sometimes, I had to sort of turn the screen to be able to see the game clearly. Other than that minor inconvenience, I truly enjoy playing with this unit.

Excalibur Electronics has done a great job on this unit and I would recommend it to all that enjoy a good game of Back Gammon.
