[Press release] Jadestone releases Backgammon Board HD for iPad
October 15, 2010 (Stockholm, Sweden) – Before today’s release of Backgammon Board HD, playing backgammon on the road meant a choice between carrying along a bulky real board or make do with a cheap digital version. No more. The newly released iPad game is a detailed and carefully crafted representation of a real life board –made by backgammon players for backgammon players.
In 2009, Jadestone launched DiceArena Backgammon on the web. More than 2.5 million games have been played since then. With the launch of the Backgammon Board HD for iPad, we celebrate the continued success of this classic game on the most exciting new gaming platform to hit the market in recent years.
From board and checkers to dice rolls and instruction sheet, Backgammon Board HD is designed to provide a truly authentic experience. This is the app for all people who want to enjoy backgammon on the go without the hassle of bringing a real board in a box.
“Be aware, however, that Backgammon Board HD does not have an AI to play against or any built in rule system. It is designed for a two player experience, where you play against a friend, according to your own rules. In other words, this is like a real life board, except it lives in your iPad”, said Interaction Designer Peter Blom.
Backgammon Board HD costs $0.99 as special introductory price in the iTunes Store (standard price will be $1.99).
It's available in the iTunes Store today.
