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?

Pick White

I never play against the computer so I don’t have to deal with the issues I’m reading about the computer cheating. I purchased this game to play against friends remotely and it works fairly well remotely. My only issue and it sounds like I’m the only one that has this issue. More times than not the player who picks white statistically over multiple games gets the better rolls. At first I thought okay the person I’m playing for lucky a few times and got the perfect rolls right when they needed them. But it was happening too often. Not every time but more times than not. Finally I started keeping track of the doubles and acey deucy rolls and it’s about 30-70 and I played different friends about 100 times. I didn’t get this to play the computer only to play friends remotely. I know there can be a certain amount of luck to a game I just want to feel it’s more of a random roll and that isn’t the case. I still give it 3 stars.

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.
