Moot is ,


Is it me or does the computer roll an incredible amount of doubles constantly? Also, if there are 4 spaces open for me to get back in you can be sure I will roll the wrong ones all the time. Isn’t there a backgammon game that you can play with the computer that has truly random rolls?

Unbelievable bad reviews

This is an excellent game and I unreservedly recommend it.
To the people writing bad reviews (neophytes or competitors), I say learn about probability. And/or grow up! Some of you sound like beginning players or children. “That word is not in the dictionary, or he cheated, etc.” Why should David cheat? Is that what you call refining an algorithm? He is a conscientious programmer that has always been responsive to sorting out problems and making improvements on his excellent program. What more can one ask for?
If you still feel that something underhanded is going on, I would be happy to play you for money, and you could check out your abilities with a human player. Absolute Backgammon still often thrashes me on the highest level, it is relentless.
Thank you David, and keep on doing great work.

Better than most

Yes, the computer has more than it’s fair share of doubles, but with enough skill you can still beat it 35% of the time. Because the app developer knows a lot of good strategy its a good challenge for really good players. I just wish he would write the same version app that’s completely fair without any computer advantages. I’d be willing to pay almost anything for an app like that!
