Good Humored AI This is the best...and I've tried most of the rest. Sometimes it seems like the AI is toying with me...too many doubles, and then I beat him and double out. Thanks Jimmy ! And i think your rolls are good "random" quality...I've been in actual games that went in similar directions.
Best I've Found For Android Phone It's pretty darn good for practicing and playing while I have down time. I would give it 5 stars for updated version..seems to be more balanced and fair.
Best of all All said, the best backgammon app I've seen. Wondering though why sometimes there's no one online to play? Surely must be enough folks globally playing it to ensure a game every time you login in? Cheers, brilliant app!
Bc NJ The best BG app I've tried. Costs a fiver, worth twice that. Easy interface, great AI, bug free ( on old HTC, just about to install on a new phone), awesome tutor mode. Love love. Edit: all of the above is still true but I've been trying the online mode. A couple of small suggestions. 1) a timer so players can't wait for hours on their move 2) some players disconnect when they are about to lose. If a player does this then award a win! (Or at least review the current score and position and decide from there
Terrible app There is no randomness on the dice role at expert level. I played a bunch of matches and the computer would get 5x the doubles than me. Expert does not mean that the computer should get all the right rolls. If you read the instructions, the dice roll for the computer is predetermined before the game even starts. How is that backgammon? Backgammon is based on each unique roll not a predetermined sequence of rolls. 7.99 for a fake backgammon game. So want my money back.
Well thought out - and gets better with each version Above other backgammon games for Android, this one does have some convenience features, like Autoplay,when you want to hurry a part of the game, and the AI will resign when things become impossible (though it would be nice if it did this sooner rather than wait till the bitter end). There are reviews which point to the AI's "luck" but having played this game loads of time, the AI isn't lucky, it is just a really good player. Shame there isn't a trial version but you won't regret spending the money as it is a great time-waster - and also a great way to learn this truly complex and intriguing game.
