Best backgammon for real !!!

This game is bangin! Fast paced! Great effects! Interesting scoring with a luck factor as well as skill. I definitely recommend for any backgammon player looking for a fast paced action packed bop bop backgammon! Take your time and remove your pieces. Hopefully this game becomes more popular.

Although I think it is rigged so everyone ends up around 50/50 win losses. Never seen so many double ones and 11’s when it is the only numbers I can get hit on. Still a fun game to play. Wish customer service would explain the scoring in more detail.
