    FIBS the server, has been around since 1992. The programs that connect to FIBS are a rag tag bunch from different people. The main point to understand with this type of arrangement is that FIBS the server is a seperate entity from the clients. The people who run the server can't help you with client issues and authors fo the clients like JavaFIBS, 3DFiBs, FiBzilla and others, cant help with server related issues like passwords, droppers, saved games and such because these thinga are outside of the scope of the client.

    Since FIBS is somewhat freestyle. some features may seem odd but after you have played for a while you will get comfortable and will probably not want to play anywhere else.

    FIBS is a fun place to play backgammon. The average fibster is a strong opponent and the atmosphere is that of a friendly small club with regulars that have been there for years.
