Great game but the dice are loaded! This is an excellent game however I've also played thousands of games both in person and against computers (Jellyfish) but this app constantly and consistantly rolls the perfect throw when the odds are against me. Conversly, I've just played a game where I threw a double 4, 5 times in a row.. That's not normal or random. I've read all the other reviews about the dice and it definately makes me think somethings up regardless of what the developers say. Overall a good app though.
I've had this game installed on my phones for years. It's the only backgammon app that I liked. I just recently installed it on my new phone and there are changes! On my other phones, I won at least 75% of the games on level 5...on the new phone, I'm not even winning 50%! Regardless of what the developer says, the dice are no longer random...they are definitely loaded in favour of the CPU. Still a good game, but I think I'll be using my older phones to play...
Can't find better I've played this game app for over three years. Over the hundreds of games CPU and I have played, the stats indicate a real world balance of first rolls, doubles, and hits. I've tried other apps, only to be awarded consistent gammons/backgammons If you play the top level you can expect a lot of opponent doubles, perfectly needed rolls, and unbelievable good luck bearing off. The reason is to make you a better player when the odds are against you. Overall I stay ahead by a slim margin, but I work for it.
Strategies to win - Love it! You'll find that the doubling cube can control your winning strategy. As soon as you double the computer works harder. Play with the difficulty levels and number of games to the match to find what suits you for each session. Warm up at easy level and work up! No super intrusive advertising interrupting your game. Yahoo! Dice doubles sometimes are better for opponent but next game reverses. Enjoy! Excellent game!
Great app I have used it ever since I got my first android device. It is dead easy to use gives good statistics. The AI could do with making a few less silly mistakes on level 5. Oh yes and for all you suspicious folk "It does not cheat"
Despite the numerous claims by the developers that the rolls are truly random I find it hard to believe. Timing of doubles for AI and low rolls for me seem non-random to make it harder. AI always seems to get a double roll after I accept the doubling cube. Often rolls exactly what it needs to capture my pieces and keep itself covered. Now with full screen ads with sound or that take me to play store to d/L apps.
