Without mutex, you can just check the window name, i.e. GNU Backgammon

Checking for a Window name

Instead of class it is possible to find a window if an application
looking for windowname.
  function FindWindowByWindowName (const WindowName: String): Longint;


This should be reliable, unless the user has another window open with
the same "GNU Backgammon" title... most unlikely
