Re: How do I earn points in the Backgammon game

I'm finding this frustrating as well.  I've been gammoning and backgammoning the computer and the score seems to be calculated based on the number of pips left on your oponent's board when you win.  This is not how backgammon is traditionally scored.  I see much higher scores than I'm getting even when I gammon the opponent.  Highest I've been able to achieve is 178 and I win consistently, but I see much higher scores from others.  No option to double the stakes so I can't see how others are scoring higher.

I'd be interested to know this, too. It's pointless to keep scores if it's impossible to know how to achieve them. When I'm playing backgammon, my mind is on strategy and tactics; I can't be bothered to watch the score & analyze how it's happening.

 

I win against the computer all the time, but my scores are typically less than 100.

 

There should be info--for EVERY game--on how to achieve higher scores.

 

Or don't keep scores!

Not a clue.  I'm just glad the computer does it and I don't have to.
