AI plays smart, but the luck of its rolls on expert level are completely unrealistic. I totally agree that there is a problem with the random generator, as these games do not reflect random numbers. The cpu had consistently small needs when needed, more doubles than me through 5 games, and landed on exactly the roll it needed to pin my piece in plakoto every time. The game plays fine, but graphics are rather ugly, and dice and totally unrealistic. Uninstalled.

This is a great app. The game engine is very good. The app would be better still if the board graphic could be improved. The white background can be a strain to have to look at for a long time. It would also be useful if the app could export game moves in the TAVLI format in the same way as is done in the desktop version of this program. Also, a doubling cube would attract more interest from the Backgammon playing community.

Excellent game that is fairly easy on the battery, plays nicely, and isn't biased. Comparable to XG mobile. Nice to see Tavli variants as opposed to straight Backgammon. No adverts! Couple of suggestions: The settings are lost everytime you leave the game (why do i need the sounds turned back on or the slower animations?) The animation could be a lot quicker.
