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.

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.

Nice Game

Nice and Fun game to play during spare time or when you are bored. It would have been Five stars if it was compatible with iphone 3G. I recommand this app to people who love to play Backgammon. Backgammon is a classic game that now you can play on latest generation of Iphone. I personally like and enjoy to play Backgammon.

Agree with mos of the reviews

I agree with most of the reviews. For beginners like me who has never played it before its not so good cz it doesn't have intrusions or tells u wot to do which would be helpful. It might be good for others who know how to play the game but not for beginners. And it's not for me.
