Really good backgammon app I haven't played backgammon for over 25 years (the last time I played was against a Mattel Intellivision!) and am very impressed. There are no ads, you pay once for the game and that's it. It gives a good game on level 5, I only won by two points. I would definitely recommend this. The graphics are great, and it's very well presented. To those who think it's cheating, I would think that programming it to cheat is harder than actually programming it to play well!
Awesome luv it - Best Bckgammon Board I don't see CPU cheating. I had several times the situation that I would loose but thanks to dices and a bit luck I won. You can win without doubles even if CPU get doubles. CPU challenged me enough times with doubles but if u do smart choices u can win =) Also doubling cube is fun. CPU challenged me plenty times where I thought I would loose yet I could beat CPU, still u will loose, too. Luv stony board. The other new one is a bit strange. Glad to switched to paid version no ads. Don't need more! Happy!
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?
I do like this game but since playing tons of games on level 4 and comparing it to level 5...on level 5 the computer comes out with doubles and rolls it exactly needs at exactly the right time. An example I was playing a game where it had a piece it needed to come out it rolled it but it was still behind. Computer rolls two sets of doubles in a row. I am still winning then it gets double 5s and 1s lol. BTW I made no mistakes at all...it just got the "better rolls". Level 5 imo is suspect, everyone play level 4.
Nice I like games from this company. They are elegant in design, not filled with useless gimmicks, nice & simple interface focused on player. Even the ads are discreet. Backgammon is good but unfortunately the AI tactics needs improvement. AI makes some "grave" mistakes under specific situations that allow me to win :-)
Good game Get some of the comments about the weird dice throws. I got two in the middle everything else ready to bear off. The opposing were all on first and second. And I throw four consecutive no moves possible? Never have in a board game. Would give it up if I did! But there's no need to rig it so I'm going to assume it's not. Just takes the edge off it when it happens. But very enjoyable anyway.
