XG seems like a great way to learn backgammon. The error/blunder notifications are great at letting me know when there is a better move. I just wish the hints explained why they are better moves. Sometimes I can see why but it isn't always obvious to me, especially when cubing and bearing off. You can turn off tutorial mode for when you just wanna play. All in all, it's a great backgammon game. It does crash often but at least it usually picks up where it left off when reopened.

Best backgammon program. It's the only one I've found (I've tried more than a dozen) that does not cheat. However, it crashes occasionally and apparently has not been updated in almost 2 years. Hence 4 stars rather than 5. Update, 6/2/22: it crashes more than occasionally. It's so unstable it's basically useless.

It seems that the higher level for the computer one plays, instead of the computer making better moves, it simply gets better dice. So the computer always plays the best move, but only the dice changes. Perhaps the dice also gets worse for oneself. Please add the ability to download the played games. Currently, email is the only option.
