Recommended As a student of the game I have to say I rate this app highly. AI is world class, appearance and game play are smooth and easy. My only criticism is that you sometimes have to wait a while for an online game.
Really top game. At higher level it is hard to beat! Best backgammon program I have found. It can play an incredible back game which I love to compete against! April 2014.....however I wonder why my opening throw is so often 6 & 3. At least 1 in every 3 games. Also when bearing off the computer gets more than its fair share of double 6s.
Much better than what I used before While there is an issue with the frequency of double dice for both AI and human, this app seems to have fairer AI than the app I used before. Note that you can use manual dice here if you so choose. The higher skill level actually seems like a better player as opposed to relying on the extremely fortunate dice rolls that are the hallmark of many other apps. I wish one could customize the look of the board, but this is minor. Bottom line, this is worth paying for.
Excellent backgammon, well worth the money I've been playing the AI Factory Backgammon game for a couple of years and beating the pants off it. I play GnuBg on my desktop and love it b/c it can play at a high level, and it provides hints to help me improve my game. Backgammon NJ plays at a similar level to GnuBg and has easy, med, hard and expert levels. This game gives no sign that it cheats with dice rolls. As Dashiel Hammett once wrote "The outcome of successful planning always looks like luck to saps."
Good android app I'm a keen backgammon amateur, and I use this app quite a few times per day. It's never going to replace Snowie or gnubg, but it plays a reasonable game and it understands Crawford and Jacoby rules; plus it shows pip count, equity and some nice playing stats. I'm quite happy with it!
I like it and I play it a lot. However it seems few things happen often: Cpu won't give up although no mathematical possibility of getting its last pips in, no need to argue, check it out yourself. Of course the option of computer resignation is selected. Lots of players agree that the amount of the doubles is ridiculous. Insanely ridiculous! I've been playing XG & BG GNU for few years but i haven't seen anything like this one. Said this i still like the app, definitely it still challenges me, still room to learn.
- Fixed bug in analysis mode where doubling errors for the game immediately following the Crawford game were not being recognized.
