Developers = bastards. Cpu programmed to cheat. 100 percent certain. Not random dice. Although some lovers of backgammon swear by the XG app, the dice roles are definitely not fair or random. PC version might be if you pay 70 dollars. App XG is weighted in favour of the computer, which produces extrodinary doubles and dice when it needs to, in order to win. It gives loads of doubles to you when you,re losing to balance stats. Still a good training app gor beginners, bit useless for experienced backgammoners. hence 2 stars.
Excellent, but ... beware the Pro version is unusable without internet connection. Downgraded to 4* pending bug fix.
Don't mind the 'unreliable' rolls but since an upgrade to 6.0.1 android constantly crashes. Which is sad as it was rock solid.
Was the best. Now won't load on any 3 of my Android 7.1.2 devices.
Basically, if you're playing against the CPU at Expert level in the free app, it's like playing against the baddie in 007 Octopussy: Always double 6 for them. And double 6 for you only if you fence. I have a theory: They're rigging it to keep us hooked and try to beat the CPU. But the dice are rigged. Mildly useful to learn the games but not 100% fair.
Great app for teaching the game The engine is solid and comparable to the PC version Xavier produced Extreme2. It also captures the market for the "kids" coming out of high school and college. For those that say it cheats and I have read a few reviews you need to compare or run prpositions in other engines with the results. This isn't intended to just be you playing the device....it's a learning tool.
