Updating my review from 2017, since I've had this game installed for that long. It is one of a few backgammon apps I play, but not my favorite now. My biggest pet peeve is that it allows an opponent who is losing to just give up and let the clock run out...which would be annoying but fine if it still counted the gammon. The opponent only loses original bet, not the chips for being gammoned. Allows for poor sports and sore losers.

So sick of getting kicked out of games! I've lost countless chips because of this. I played all day, kept getting kicked out until I lost all my chips on both my Facebook account and guest account. Went back in tonight to get my bonus so I could play one game and got kicked on both accounts so counted as losses again. I was winning both games also! And no, it's not a wifi problem, I kept switching from wifi to mobile data to make sure that wasn't the problem.

Good graphics but this app has really gone downhill over the years. Constant freezes while the timers continue to run, causing timeouts and lots of lost chips. The "random" dice rolls are nowhere near random. Whatever you do, don't buy chips as you'll lose them in a heartbeat no matter how well you play. This could be the best backgammon app if they'd just fix the obvious issues.
