About this game

Mahbuse is the popular variation of backgammon played in the Middle East. Also known as محبوسة - Plakoto - Πλακωτο - Tapa - Shesh Besh - Tavli - Mahbusa - طاولة زهر - Tawla.

True Dice! Our dice generation algorithm is now based on quantum random number generator. As close to real life dice as can be.

Mahbuse Plakoto is five times less chance than regular backgammon! It depends more on skill. Play it online against friends or random opponents.



Differences from backgammon:
Players start with all their stones on the opponents home board.
No hitting, instead blots are pinned.

In a one round of regular backgammon an unskilled player still has a 33% chance of winning a skilled player.
In Plakoto the chances are reduced to 7%.

Very good game One of rare mahbuse game with online players. The controls need a lot of improvement, like once the game is over there is no Exit button, can't turn sound off, if I want to listen to music or podcast during play. There should be an advanced mode with no highlights for moves

It is fun but a lot of glitches I just had one where opponent rolls dice but he does not move and it comes back to me to roll. Another time appointment start finishing and putting eating stones while I have one of the stones is blocked. The dice is rolled with very unusual probabilities. Those who play it often knows about the glitches and processing and that's how they win. However, most of the time it is a fun game.

Love the game. I feel the "random players" are sometimes bots. Also, I don't like the timer on the game. There's an enjoyment to the strategizing you take the time to do. I understand the need for a timer so that players don't take forever to make a move, but maybe the timer could be per move rather than per game.
