Backgammon Program: Jellyfish
Probably the best known computer backgammon program, Jellyfish has had a
significant effect on many aspects of the modern game. It plays on FIBS
under the names jellyfish and jf_level_five.
Jellyfish is a commcerial program written by Fredrik Dahl (firstname.lastname@example.org, fredrikd on FIBS) and
Effect Software, Norway. Three versions exist, all for MS Windows only:
The Jellyfish Web site
gives full information and lets you download the shareware version.
- Shareware: plays matches but does nothing else
- Tutor: ditto, plus comments on your moves and cube decisions
- Analyser: ditto, plus rollouts
I have a record of my first 160 matches
with Jellyfish, set to level 5.
