Customer Reviews

One of the best

Ok, I'm kind of obsessed with trying every backgammon app in the store. I've found that this is the one that I keep coming back to. Very good design for the user interface. Animation is quick and smooth. Showing possible moves is nicely displayed. I don't agree with other reviews indicating that the odds are stacked in favor of the application. If anything, I am occasionally surprised that the computer leaves tokens unnecessarily exposed. Also, the computer occasionally fails to exploit obvious bump opportunities. But, all-in-all, it is easy to play and addictive, due to its fast pace and intuitive control features.

A reasonable game

ALL pocket backgammon programs cheat. ALL of them. They have too. Hand helds don't have enough computing power to stage a "hard" game in a reasonable response cycle. So they cheat the rollout odd. This one is more attractive than most. Easier to play. Plenty of settings and an undo button plus full direction of play options.

Only real weakness is that it doesn't use much basic strategy in medium difficulty (the highest play mode before you trigger "super luck" on the opposing dice."

Hence, it is pretty easy to beat it or impossible - not much in between. Still an attractive game for little money.

Very good dice.

I've read a lot of reviews that says the dice are loaded.
But I've played this game about 100 or more times.
Yes, there are a lot of doubles that the computer gets but, I also get a lot of doubles.
But I also play a real game of backgammon board, and you can roll a huge number of doubles there also.
This is one of the better backgammon games in the iphone store.
So, overall I'm giving this a five star review.
