Good BG app

PlayGem is a very good BG app with a few drawbacks. The good: Excellent time management protocol minimizes how much of your time opponents can waste while still giving you sufficient time to consider your moves. You can usually find an opponent within a few seconds. There's a wide selection of board designs, so you can pick what you like visually. The not-so-good: In addition to the doubling cube there's an All-in bet. Hackers can use this to clean you out. It's one thing to lose a game to a cheater; it's entirely another to lose EVERYTHING. Another drawback, IMO, is that the only ranking is how many chips you have and how much you're willing to bet -- and since you can buy more chips, that does not directly correlate to skill. So there's no real way to play only elite players, or only novices, or whatever your comfort level is.

Not an honest game

I was initially skeptical of the reviews suggesting this is not an honest game, but after only a few days watching it closely, that appears to be the case. This looks to be another game designed with neuroscientist input to manipulate people into spending money on chips by orchestrating results. Expect to do very well initially, until you get caught by one of various traps meant to get you into a postion for a large loss. Watch your opponents plays and evaluate whether you are playing a human being or a bot (despite the clumsily programmed movement delays and reconsiderations of movements). And then there's the stuff that's just ridiculous where my "opponent" managed to win by bearing off 13 stones while two were still in the bar.

I want to play honest backgammon against human opponents. This game, though, appears to use backgammon as nothing more than a front for shaking people down with sophisticated neuroscience based techniques. Basically, it's Candy Crush with a fresh coat of paint (a bright pretty color that draws the primal eye).

Refreshing backgammon game

I was using the #1 rated backgammon game but I strongly felt as if I was playing a computer and not a person. Every time I had a lot of coins the game would mysteriously force me to play a board I did NOT tap on. At first I thought I was doing something wrong but after being oh so very careful and having it happen to me again I realized it wasn't me, it was the game. There was no way to get out of the board once it opened without losing your money. It was so frustrating. I really like that this game allows you to cancel if you make a mistake without losing your money. interestingly enough I haven't needed that option with this game. Things that make you go hummmmm.
