Love it but it does cheat! I love this Backgammon game an it is definitely the best Backgammon game on Android. The Dev's maintain like crazy the Ai does not cheat... but it is inconceivable that it does not, there are just far to many doubles and lucky escapes, especially on the higher levels. I was just playing on Level 4 and had three of his stones on the bar and only a few points available on my home board... the Ai threw a double to get all 3 out and take one of my blots, and the next throw it picked off 2 more blots and then a further one on the next turn. Within 3 turns it had gone from having 3 stones on my bar to having 4 of my stones on its bar. This is just statistically unlikely. I have just finished another match where the Ai threw 3 high doubles in the last 4 rolls of the match! I am just bemused by the Dev's claim that the Ai does not cheat. Reply to Dec's reply: I have played backgammon all my life. I aware that sometimes the most amazing rolls occur, however... your Ai the "unlikely sequences" happen far too frequently and are a little far too amazing to be real. I have read the article and now your constant copypasta replies are annoying. I will change this review to 1* soon.
Cheats like crazy I have won ONE opening roll in all the games I have played. Also, it isn't just the exceedingly high number of doubles it gets, it's the timing. Just when doubles would win a game it has been losing to that point, there they are! That's not random. Please don' t tell me to use the live dice option; that's not why I bought a computer game.
F__K this game. How do I give this zero stars? Update...after months and only because I purchased this wreck I decided to reinstall and give it another go. Uhhhh...it's still a HUGE no go. If you love playing backgammon, have a large background in it and know the board inside and out, you'll soon see how uneven and ridiculous the "high" # 5 setting is when playing against the bot. When is someone going to invent a REAL DICE ROLLER? One without the "cheating doubles" factor to compensate for skill? Total garbage!
Backgammon Never played the game I saw on the reverse of my checker board. Downloaded the free version for my tablet and liked it. Purchased the app for my smart phone. Excellent game as are most from this provider.
Been playing for years. Really like the auto bear off but the logic needs work. When in danger of losing more than 1 point that should be the top priority to prevent. Also, I've seen the bear off logic with a 6-1 roll move the 1 first then move the exact same piece off the board with the 6. It should use the 6 first to bear off then use 1 to fill the furthest out slot that isn't occupied (or bear a 1 off when available).
What cheek I've won enough games to know that the computer doesn't cheat. You people are merely sore losers &, undoubtedly, cry babies.
