NAME

       gnubg - play and analyse backgammon games

SYNOPSIS

       gnubg [options] [saved-game-file]

DESCRIPTION

       This manual page briefly documents gnubg, the GNU Backgammon program.
       This  manual  page  was  written  for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution
       because the original program does not have a manual page.  Instead,  it
       has  documentation  in the GNU Info format; to access this information,
       type info gnubg.
