Classical Backgammon game for the iPad optimized for a convenient two-player and online network game.
Backgammon is a two-player board game requiring strategic thinking. The object of the game is to move all your checkers to the "home" and bear them off. The first player to bear off all his/her checkers wins the game.
While developing this app we tried to recreate the Backgammon game, to make it fun to play just like the real board game. For this, the app features the game board, checkers and dice designed like real, and the sounds are natural too. We also like to play Backgammon ourselves and realize that this is a dynamic game. So we made all animations fast not to slow down the pace of the game. We strongly believe that playing with a real player is much more interesting than with a senseless machine. That is why we did not include AI game mode, but our Backgammon is optimized to have fun playing live and over the network.

What's New in Version 1.4
Fixed bug with net game "freeze".
I would rate this game with 5 stars if it weren't for the excessive number of doubles. Everything else is perfect. Doubles should occur only about 16% of the time.
