About this game

★ Top Developer (awarded 2013) ★
Same as our "Backgammon", but no Ads.

Backgammon is a game of skill and strategy; one of the world's classic parlour board games, played for recreation and gambling. Like Mahjong, Backgammon is played in social groups in coffee houses and bars. Historically, variants of this game are believed to have been played in Mesopotamia and Egypt thousands of years ago, then by the Romans and later in India. It also spread to East Asia, but was largely replaced by Xiangqi (Chinese chess). It is now very popular in the West.

Game play is great but the AI is terrible. There's no way I should have a 27-3 match record against the highest level, 7. The AI really fails at the games most important tool, the doubling cube. The AI accepts doubles it shouldn't, doubles when it shouldn't, and fails miserably to use the doubling cube when it should. Not to mention the AI still allows itself to be backgammoned unnecessarily. Please improve the AI, the gameplay is the best but it's really not as fun winning every time.

Thank you for your review. The new level 7 is stronger when playing against level 5 and also plays better against other AI engines than level 5 does, but this is AI vs AI and different human play styles may find some cpu styles and strategies easier than others. We're looking at the AI engine again now, keeping player feedback in mind.

Game play is great. Obviously not random dice rolls, not so much. Takes all of the fun out of it when cpu almost always gets rolls it needs to hit you and you can go several turns without getting the roll you need in the same situation. Oh it always getting double 5's and 6's at the perfect time. I've played hundreds of times now so not a small sample size. When I play a desktop backgammon game, it feels like luck can go either way. Not with this app.

Thank you for the feedback, however dice rolls are random, independently tested and assessed as fair play (aifactory.co.uk/gli.htm), so cpu player may appear to roll what it needs because it uses probability to choose moves to cover all possible rolls (aifactory.co.uk/backgammon.htm). We simply have nothing to gain from unfair play.

This is the best app for learning backgammon because it gives the user so much control. You decide when to level up based on your stats. Watch Marc Olsen's tutorial videos then practice what you learn in this app. Suggestions for developers: Option to say when your turn ends. I hate when I move by accident and the game goes on without me! Let me say when it's the AI's turn to go. Also a timer. I'd like to practice with timed turns.
