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.
Bug with randomness App is good but there is an on-going systemic problem with the random number generator. The number of times the same die are repeated on the following go is not statistically random - there's a bug there. It's so frequent that it has conditioned my play and i sometimes think about it when deciding on my next move.
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."
Best bg app Best backgammon app available. Greatly improves your game and fun to play. I bought extreme gammon for my iPad and it pales in comparison - particularly in the areas of graphics and unobtrusive tips. It would be nice to be able to hide pip count with option to view it at "match info" or "hint."
- Fixed bug in analysis mode where doubling errors for the game immediately following the Crawford game were not being recognized.
