Good game but some issues A good game with better play than the previous backgammon game I used. Disappointed to discover that that I am unable to select more than a 1 point match in multi player mode, e.g. Tigergammon. Also been hit by the bug which doesn't always allow legal moves when bearing off. Saving the game and restarting has not resolved this for me
The best backgammon app. Visually appealing, and interface is nice. Connect to servers to play humans. Difficulty settings allow for challenging yet enjoyable game. On hi-difficulty, people will tell you that the "ai" cheats. Statistically, there is a normal distribution of players, and those at the extremes of the curve will experience being screwed over again and again by apparently rigged dice. Please continue to work out your bad backgammon karma. Investigate gnu bg to see how bad your moves are. Alca-coop please add hint mode!
Nice GUI bad experience What else can I say? There are awful issues while playing with FIBS, being unable to end a game properly. This app always loses pace with the FIBS server, as failing to refreshing the board with the actual game position forces you to stop, restart and then pray for the app to take you back to the game without any major problem. The worst is the FIBS client drops connection whenever the mobile switches networks, dropping the game, major nuisance. Disgusting.
Not Right As others have noted when playing this game at higher levels the Ai has a statistically unlikely ability to throw the exact dice it needs to win a losing game. Try playing at the lower levels and this happens much less. I have read the developers response that states this is the natural outcome of the strategy employed at the higher levels. Bollocks. A 1/18 chance throw should happen once in eighteen times otherwise its rigged.
Some bugs not fixed yet When double clicking, especially on double pulls when out of house to put them back over the adverse pulls, it behaves very strange..
Cheats because... automatically makes me double when I dont and wont let me undo those "moves" etc. And way to many annoying adds; there are ways to include adds w/o making them annoying you know!? Just cheated me another way: I had two men on the 1 pt and ready to backgammon him (he had men in my board)... He resigned the game giving me 2x instead of being bkgammonned for 3x!! What a cheat!
