Roman Backgammon unearths the roots of the classic Backgammon game to deliver a unique experience with slightly different rules and a custom mosaic game board and dice design to take you back in time. Roman Backgammon is a simpler, ancient version of backgammon that is fun for adults and an excellent way to introduce children to the game. It can be played in standard one or two player modes, or you can select an opponent from anywhere in the world using Game Center. Three levels of difficulty ensure a broad range of play and iTunes integration even lets you select music from your own library.

In Roman Backgammon, all stones begin off the board. Both players move on and off the board in the same direction. The board does not have the triangular points used in modern backgammon.
