It plays well. I love playing with people from all over the world. I think maybe coffee would be a better default gift than a martini as some of the the players from around the world don't drink for religious reasons. I don't like gifting the martinis for that exact reason. I don't want to offend anyone! Maybe it doesn't matter since they aren't real. I don't know. The boards are beautiful mostly. It's funny, and affordable that I like the cheaper ones best! You can play for free with a little patience.
DO NOT get this app. After you roll the dice and move your pieces, your timer keeps going and then it says you lost. If you buy coins they steal them back by making your timer keep going so you lose. They do that so you will buy more coins. If you try to contact them, you WILL NOT get an answer. I have contacted them repeatedly and I haven't received any replies. They are very shady and just want to take your money. Stay away from this game. Get s different app. These people are thieves.
The rolls are not random. I've played too many games and the same thing happens in the majority of games. The rolls of opponents are predictable and rigged against you if you are a lower level. It is obvious. Have seen it happen too many times. And the double the bet or lose feature is a joke. Most assuredly a lower level player is forced to double and 9/10 they will lose.
Dice rolls are ridiculous and built purely for entertainment. No matter how strategic and safe/smart you play, this game finds a way to screw you over. Clearly the developers are more interested in having you buy their coins rather than earning them through gameplay. Backgammon is a great game, but this app is built for dummies and built by scam artists.
This is my favorite BG app! Sure needs a second login/agree to start because sometimes if you're sleepy you can accidentally start a high stakes game and go to sleep without even playing it!
5 stars for daylight robbery. Shameless cheats. Just a few hundred fake "players" who get endless doubles which defy all laws of probability and can win a game from any position. If you are stupid enough to buy coins than you deserve to lose it. Play free and you will find out for yourself. You have no chance against the inbuilt cheating. It let's you win a couple before it selects one of the "fakes" profiles to steal you money with impossible throws followed by offer to buy more cheap coins which they can steal from you. I don't mind losing a fair fame but not by cheats I am uninstalling this.
