Ratings and Reviews
Of course it is frustrating when the computer seems to get the prefect roll at the perfect time, but the accusations that the game cheats is absurd. People making this accusations do not understand statistics and probability.
I think this game works great. If I have a complaint it is that I think the developers may have dumbed down the computer expert. Even playing at the highest degree of difficulty. I am shocked to see how many sub-optimal opening moves it makes. For example, rolling 3-1 and not establishing the 5 point, rolling 6-1 and not establishing the 7 point. I use to play at the highest level and only won around 30% of tournaments. Recently I have been winning 70%. I speculate that the developers got sick and tired of all the whining about cheating and dumbed down the computer expert. If that is true, can you please restore the true best computer expert?
Defies All Odds
A review from a high ranked player:
At level 4, this is the most cheating Backgammon game there is.
Don't ever let yourself get knocked out. Average rolls for the game to get back in: 1.5. Average rolls needed for you to get back in: 5.5. If the computer has only 2 or 3 points blocked, those are the rolls you'll get over and over again. If you have 5 points blocked, the computer will find the open spot in one or two rolls. In one game, the computer got exactly the only two-die roll needed to escape and hit so often, we calculated the odds at over 10,000 to one.
We play this only to ridicule it. We would call out 6 and 4 almost every time that was the only roll that would win for the computer. Doubles when behind, immediately followed by multiple doubles.
Aggravating but Fun...
It is fun, but I wouldn't recommend it to a learning player because it will encourage a vastly over cautious strategy of play. One of the fun aspects of backgammon is understanding the odds and knowing what risks to take. Backgammon Gold punishes risk taking. It is beatable because it plays so foolishly, but it is nowhere near the neighborhood of honest backgammon.
Oh btw, their website claims the game is not rigged, which is tempting to believe, but as a statistician, after having played hundreds of games I can testify that it is difinitely rigged. "Computer expert" rolls doubles at a rate approximately quintuple the odds. The rigged rolls become predictable, particularly after accepting a double. I can't imagine why a programmer of games would do this, but there ya go.
