Okay, so each guess entails entering a new URL into the web browser... and each wrong guess rewards the player by showing a 404 page with a giant ad for an online backgammon site? I smell business model!

Every time I see one of these puzzles, I get the distinct impression that it is a lot more fun making them than solving them.

I like. Way less frustrating than the last one.

No, it's an anti-backgammon site. It teaches people to associate backgammon with failure and frustrated hopes.

I thought I solved 4, but I ended up on 8. That's a lot less backgammon, so I'm just going with it.

I hate these kinds of games. It seems to me that, at best, the pleasure is similar to, in Infocom games, where the whole puzzle is trying to figure out what VERB to use to interact with the object.

Which is to say, no pleasure at all.

Meh.

I finished reading the rules and had no idea what the game was. It did nothing for me.

Way too addictive. I am in the middle of batch 2 though.
