What's New in Version 1.56

• Improved AI engine
• Minor bug fixes
Dice have been totally "loaded" since update!
I have been using this app for years but sadly it has been utterly ruined since the last update.
I am totally in favour of having a challenging opponent. However, after numerous games since the update, It is clear that the computer has started awarding itself incredible dice and also sabotaging its opponents by making it impossible to get back in once taken up etc.
This means that games are now very predictable and it is totally pointless to take risks etc to make them more exciting as this tactic NEVER pays off. You can also NEVER win by paying a back game which is completely unlike 'real life' backgammon.
Optime really need to make an effort to make this app challenging by playing the game WELL, not by simply loading the dice! That's pathetic and lazy!
It would also be good to have a 'concede' button so that you could end games when you reckon you've been beaten instead of wasting time having to see through every game to the finish.
The AI is very lucky.
This is a good game. But since the recent upgrade my phone has uncannily good luck. It didn't before. Now it gets doubles just when it needs them. A lot. It is always ahead on pips and not through skill. Through throwing higher dice consistently. I've been playing more. It's uncanny. It has this knack of offering a double and then throwing exactly what it needs. Almost every time. It's pretty irritating. I still beat it most of the time but some matches it races ahead by throwing the dice it needs consistently. I watch out for my own lucky throws - I'm not only noticing the AI's. Weird.
Beginner to backgammon
Never played before, but interested in playing backgammon I found this app a very useful tool to learn how to play, I was concerned at first due to the many negative comments about the app, however I feel for something that is free this app is great. If I get better at playing I have the option to buy a app that suits my playing ability . Very well done to the app developers, keep up the good work
