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.

Ratings and Reviews
Game cheats/Poor Programming
I reiterate comments that have been placed before: the programmer has altered the dice randomness to favor the computer with higher difficulty levels. This is tremendously disappointing since the game is otherwise beautifully laid out. I suggest looking for a “more honest“ game.
Very poor stability
I keep loosing games because “my internet connection was lost” but it’s Not my internet. It’s the app. I don’t have this issue with any other app and my internet is state of the art.
This game is laggy, screen freezes and locks up. It's not my iPad or internet connection. Please fix the bugs in the game. It would be an awesome game. Even better than what it is now.
Hi Grannyjanjan! Thanks for your feedback. May I ask what iPad you are using? Especially on older generations of iPads the game can be quite demanding. There might also be a problem with your RAM being full - to take care of that, please just shut off and on your iPad and your apps should run more smoothly if that is the problem. Backgammon overall is a very stable game for us with only 3% of the sessions being problematic. However, there will soon be an update, once the developers finished their work on our Yatzy game. Hope this will make it better for you!
