Abstract: In this paper we describe AnyGammon, a program that extends the casual board game of backgammon to different board sizes while retaining the familiar game rules. Small board sizes make it easier to analyze algorithms and game evaluation functions. Large board sizes make the original games more challenging and interesting for the players. Finally, we demonstrate how ancient, forgotten variants of backgammon can be resurrected by AnyGammon.
