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!
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?
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.
Seems unfair I understand the devs have no reason to fix the dice in cpu favour, but it seems comp always gets EXACTLY what it needs to bump. Very frustrating. It's like clockwork, leave chip open, cpu bumps. Makes game almost intolerable.
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.
