Random rolls ... finally an honest backgammon app.

Other backgammon apps are widely believed to create roll scenarios based on profitability. This one provides truly random rolls. I have played online backgammon with this app for years and I find it reliable and fun. At all times, day or night, it hooks me up with a live player in less than thirty seconds. I have played people from all over the world which adds to the fun of this global and ancient game. Play against the AI (the computer) is fun too though it is not like playing a human. My only disappointment is that the game does not allow for a doubling cube. There are no matches, just single games. The developer says this is because most handheld online players only want to play one game but I have played on another app where 5-game opponents are readily available. Despite this, this is the best app out there. The other apps, including the one allowing matches, do not have truly random dice throws. You can have six doubles, one after another, or crazy inconsistencies with the other apps. It is believed that these other backgammon apps guide the rolls for increased profitability because they offer in-app purchases. This backgammon app is pure backgammon and is the IOS leader for good reason. Someday, someone will develop an honest app with match play and that will be the day I use another app; until then, this is my daily player.

Highest level shows poor programming

Deleted game due to expert level on the computer having way too many good rolls at just the right time. One more thing to show how dishonest the rolls are is that tone deaf rabbit gave an amazing review with four stars but others have given a higher rating so how is it that this review is always on top. Yet again the fix is in! Also,
In order to increase the difficulty of a game one should not substitute highly improbable dice rolls instead one should improve the statistical play of the AI. It is infuriating to see the AI come up with dice rolls that magically get the stone off the bar when space is mostly covered. Further, it is even more frustrating to see your own dice rolls alway come up on covered spaces when they only have two spaces covered. Then to top it off, the dice rolls seem to never get you off the bar if the AI has a chance to cover all the spaces. Also the number of doubles increases when playing the highest level. I have seen many instances where the AI will roll box cars and get from the bar back to home. I have also seen many occurrence where the AI will roll the correct combination to send two or more stones to the bar.

Game review

I’ve been playing backgammon for over 40 years. I understand the computers are programmed by people sometimes those people don’t use common sense. This particular game is fun and it’s difficult at times for a myriad of reasons. You’re the biggest reason that I have trouble with this game and I’m about to remove it from my phone, is because it essentially equates to cheating. Let me explain, I’m not a sore loser and I do not mind losing to a game to people it doesn’t matter, I except losing with all things are equal. This game however has a glitch which is simply this whenever the computer needs the perfect role it gets it exactly. For example if I am uncovered and there’s only two spaces to capture me the computer rolls or two every time it’s frustrating because that’s not how real life works. Most of the time when playing backgammon or the version that I like which is called Acey Ducey you never roll what you need. Information I find it inconceivable that the computer rolls exactly what it needs every single time without fail and is able to win over and over and over because of it. What is the sense in having three settings easy normal and hard with all three of the same result. So if you were thinking about downloading this app please read this review and understand that you are fighting a war you cannot win and you will get frustrated knowing that the computer is rolling dice combinations it would never get that often.
