Loaded Dice The cpu strategy is weak and predictable. It must compensate by manipulating the dice rolls in its favour. With 36 ways two dice can land its not difficult to figure the probabilities, and they are nearly impossible. Ai replies to reviews assuring players the dice rolls are random...I guess you think we're all stupid
The best! I've played a lot of these and this one is great. The AI doesn't cheat (though I'd love to say it does at times...) I play on level 5 and consistently find it challenging. Thank you for making my torturous train ride bearable. How much do I have to pay you to make the IPad version?
Love the new board! I have over a dozen paid games on my tablet, most costing more than this one, and this continues to be the best buck I ever spent in the the Google Play Store, even considering the free version. Pay up already, folks! This one deserves your support.
Luck of the dice. I understand that the program uses algorithms to make best use of the dice rolls. I've tried to emulate the moves the program makes, but I can't, because I don't get the same luck of the dice. It usually gets to bear off first and it's almost as if the cpu gets the dice roll for the optimum move rather than the other way around. Very frustrating.
Great game but dice roll needs to be fixed. (02/05/2016) Still probably the best backgammon game out there but computer still gets EXACTLY the roll needed to hit me off the board or gets multiple consecutive doubles if it is significantly behind in the pip count. I initiated a double where both of our chips were on our side to score but I was up by 30 points. The AI accepted and then got 3 doubles in a row to catch up! Statistically impossible! And this has happened to me multiple times! Need a TRULY randomized dice roll!
Seems like it cheats, but really it doesn't! I only play at Level 5 (the hardest) and almost always only lose if I'm not focused on my own checker play. Otherwise, the AI is beat-able, tho tricky. I think players who always "remember" the useless doubles they get (and/or the favorable doubles the AI gets) would almost always have "forgotten" the useful doubles they themselves have rolled. I've never played tournaments before and I'm wondering if anyone's tournament play have improved after continually playing and beating AI players. Just wondering.
