How to Start with GAMMONLAB
GAMMONLAB has an Interactive Backgammon
Move List window under the board, and the Controls to the right of the board.
The yellow prompt on the right hand side of the board always tells you what you may do at any given moment.
You can start playing with GAMMONLAB right away -- just follow the prompt. You can use the Control area to select either "Random Roll' button or select the dice manually via drop-down controls next to each die. Once the dice are ready, you can move the checkers manually by dragging. You can also use the 'Best Move' button, asking GAMMONLAB to make its best move for you.
Additional GAMMONLAB Options

You can use the Setup control tab - on the right hand side of the Controls - to set up any position, to change the board display, animation speed, and to control the depth of computer analysis
You can use the Match control tab - on the right hand side of the Controls - to set up any multi-point match, or to import/export/analyze matches
