While the main content is that of a normal backgammon magazine, I plan to
take advantage of the internet to make it as interactive as possible to
get you, the reader, involved. Some of the ideas are:
1) An ongoing match between myself and the readers, with the reader's plays determined by their own vote. Naturally I will keep an running commentary on the match.
2) A monthly quiz, which allows the readers to submit their answers online.
3) A letters to the editor column, where I will attempt to answer all letters I receive. This may evolve into a bulletin board in the future.
Another advantage of an on-line magazine is basically unlimited space. We are not limited to what will fit into some fixed number of pages or the publishing costs get too great. While in a normal backgammon magazine you will be lucky to find an annotated game or two, here you will find a fully annotated match every issue. The annotation will be as long as necessary, since there are no space limitations. Also you will be able to get a graphical picture of all the candidate moves and compare them for every play, something which would be impractical for a normal backgammon magazine.
So, enjoy this demo issue, and I hope you choose to subscribe. I have kept the subscription cost as low as I reasonably could, in the hope of staying within more readers price range. Also, feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org any ideas, criticisms, or anything else. My goal is for this to be your magazine, and for everybody to have an enjoyable time with this product.
