    I know nothing about backgammon but just had a look at a board.
    If I understand you correctly, could you use multi dimensional arrays to hold values to represent the checkers?

    Now that I have looked at the game rules, you may only need a pair of simple arrays with each element holding a integer for the column count. Then write a function to find all the valid moves and a way of evaluating the most beneficial move depending on other factors in the state of the game.
