New Backgammon (BGY) Game formats

Here are some new game styles the BGY team recently introduced for playing in blitzes.  Hopefully these brain twisters will add an extra dash of spice to the game.

Snake in the Grass

Regular backgammon, except when your opponent occupies "at least 3 adjacent spots of the same color PIP" with single checkers, it's a SNAKE and you must not hit any part of the snake or else you get bitten by it and must resign and report loss.

Full House

Regular backgammon, except once you block all the spaces in your house you win & opponent must resign and report loss. In case no one can block the house the game will continue as a regular backgammon and the winner will be the one who finishes the game first.

Loser Wins

Play to lose! If you are the first player to finish bearing off your PIPs, you lose and must report as a loss.   This game is played on unrated tables.
