Play against the local AI, a friend on the same device or an online opponent in this classic solo and online multiplayer Backgammon board game.

Welcome to the 2021 version of Backgammon. Relieve boredom, have fun and exercise your mind all at the same time with this classic dice game.

Backgammon has been played throughout the world for thousands of years. ZingMagic's critically acclaimed version of Backgammon was one of the first Backgammon games for iOS. Continual updates and improvements ensure it remains one of the best versions available.

In essence Backgammon is a simple race game. The object is to move the pieces around the board towards your inner table. Once all 15 of your pieces have arrived in the inner table, they can be removed from the board. The first player to remove all his pieces from the board is the winner. Although game play is highly skilful, moves rely on the roll of the dice introducing an element of luck.

A common complaint against all Backgammon dice games is that it cheats. So does it cheat? absolutely not, what would be the point? Still don’t believe us then roll your own dice outside the game and enter those values to play against any of the game levels. Backgammon also keeps track of all the dice rolls so you can check on the game yourself.

Back gammon is also known as narde, tavli, gammon, nardi, shesh besh! or tavla.

Pretty good

Adverts are slightly annoying, but this is still a pretty good iPhone version of backgammon!

Best avoided

The difficult stages are not difficult, just impossible as the remotest dice rolls needed by the computer are so constant and unrealistic it just beggars belief. When will these writers learn that a difficult game of backgammon is about the computer carrying out the best moves and not getting doubles and banging out opponent's single pieces where the optimum dice roll required by the computer appears roll after roll after roll. A joke.
