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!
Best Backgammon App I've Played Though I'm still a novice I have to say this is the best backgammon app I've tried -- and I think I may have tried all the others. The dice roll function seems a bit less random than real dice, but that is not easy to know without testing. But whatever, it also seems better than the dice randomness in other apps. I would like this app even more if it allowed me to use the board in a non-game mode for reviewing notable games included in backgammon books. I'm not sure how best to articulate that idea...
Best I have tried At first, I thought no way, the more I played, I learned from the computer, now I can actually Win a match. The hints aren't always the best way to go. I get bumped too often. They have helped me learn to be a better player. I am very new to the game. I would buy this for my tablet if it is available.
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.
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.
Beautifully done, well worth the money. It's sad that the overall rating of the app is negatively affected by clueless reviewers claiming cheating. I'd like to be able to set up a position, both manually and by position ID, and either play it out or conduct a rollout.
