I like the game. However, recently the ads are ridiculously difficult to get out of, and the app closes itself. I uninstalled and re-installed and it's still doing it. Please fix!
When i first downloaded the game it was great, dice rolls seemed very random. Playing at level 4 won about 50% of the time. Then after a few weeks I noticed the doubles for the cpu player were about double every game, reset statitics and the following match had 17 doubles for cpu to my 10 and 16 pieces hit to my 11, this pattern went on for a few more days, to frustrating to play game of skill and luck and not get any luck. Played with the use your own dice method, back to 50% wins.
The randomized dice rolls are clearly broken. I trust that the developers put their best effort into making it truly random but it just isn't right. Maybe give up on "random" and go for a normalized distribution curve. It'll feel more "random" to the player and possibly resolve most of the complaints I'm seeing here. After all, real dice aren't truly random right?
Blot movement is slow. Ai is weak. Graphics are fine. If you can get to a Windows computer or phone, check out Backgammon Pro by Bernardo Zamora. Best ever!
Have been playing this game for years now and have always enjoyed playing. I have tried some of the other backgammon apps; but I always come back to this my most proffered electronic version of backgammon.
I think it's ridiculously programed to basically always get bad hands yet the computer always gets high doubles. And somehow, if i am in the lead, the dice also happens to roll the computer only good numbers to get ahead and win while i get horrible ones and lose. It's rigged.
