Backgammon, also known as Tavla, is a two players board game that involves a combination of strategy and luck, due to rolling dice. The goal is to remove all of one’s own playing pieces from the board before the opponent can do the same. While the dice can determine the outcome of a single game, strategy is what separates the good and the better players over a series of games.

Why did you change the game?
The former version was no longer compatible with iOS 11 (it wouldn't start or crash in most cases). The code base of the former version was too old to just be updated which is why we needed to rebuild the game from scratch. We used this opportunity to also implement a multiplayer mode and update the graphics.

How can I play the former / old version of Backgammon?
You can only play the old version if you don't update the game and use a device that uses iOS 10.3.3 or lower.

Where is the "Undo" button?
After your first move, there will be a circular arrow pointing to the left, at the bottom right of the board. Tapping the arrow will undo your move.

Not kid friendly

Things were fine up until about a week ago whenI started getting adds started taking over the game. During a play the add opens up then another and another. Today porn took over my game. I’m done. Thanks anyway.

Developer Response

Hi a.....g! Thanks for your feedback. If you experience these kind of ads, I would advice you to have your phone checked for malware. Porn ads are not coming from us but usually a result of malware on the device that hijacks different ad-modules in games like ours to display their own ads instead. Sorry you had to experience this!


Game is rigged

Not much of a game. The harder levels simply mean the AI gets better rolls. The odds of back to back double sixes are pretty steep. Not so in this game, unless your the human player. I predict you will tolerate it for a while and then just delete it like I did. Save yourself the stress and try a different app!

AI is lucky and stupid

I tried a few of the backgammon games out, and at first this one seemed to be pretty good. But, it soon became apparent that the AI gets the doubles and the only roll that can save it and send me to the bar. I have played lots of very lucky people, so this doesn't bother me as much as the AI making stupid moves. In expert or easy level the computer only tries to get as many pieces to the one space-even if it could take bear off a piece. IE... It has men in the "6", "5" & "4" positions and rolls a "5" & "4". It moves from the "6" & "5" position to the "2" & "1" position instead of off the board. On my last game before I deleted the app- it's one of many stupid moves was to not take my back man and place it on the bar when it had all but one space for my coming in blocked. I already had half my men off the board- it could not win a running game.

On the good side- it looks pretty.
