Backgammon is not a game of luck as many perceive, but rather, a strategic visual game of war; in many ways it is as difficult to master as chess.
Although an element of luck is involved, a skilled backgammon player uses intuition, calculations, creativity and psychology to beat the opponent.
The goal in backgamon online is to move all own checkers into the home board and then bear them off (i.e. remove them from the backgammon board). The first backgammon player to remove all of his checkers wins the backgammon game.
The Help section of Backgammon Live Online presents rules and strategies for backgammon. You will learn the best ways to play your opening rolls, how to Build a Blockade, how to Establish Anchors, how to Optimize Distribution of Checkers and how to Reduce 'Good' Rolls for the Opponent.
The backgammon strategies section describes When to Expose Checkers vs. When to Consolidate Them and how to make a decision When to Hit or not to Hit opponent's backgammon checker.
Although backgammon is a very old game, it still continues to fascinate its numerous fans around the globe. It is no wonder that nowadays there are many spellings and acronyms of the game's name. Backgammon can be referred to as: gammon, backgamon and even baggamon, baggammon and bagamon and bagammon! In Greece and Turkey, backgammon is known as tavla. In Iran and Russia, they call backgammon nardi.
If backgammon were strictly a game of chance, players would only be expected to win on average just about one half of their games. Yet, just like in chess, stronger backgammon players consistently win games against backgammon newbies. There is a lot more skill required in backgammon than just rolling the dice and mindlessly racing checkers around the board!

Competitive and Fun
Out of the five backgammon apps I’ve downloaded and played over the past few years, this is probably the most competitive and enjoyable due to the opportunity to compete with players around the world. The random dice generator is fair and game analysis with dice rolls are provided after each game. The latest update provided pairings based upon experience and winning percentage. Overall, I have enjoyed it to learn and improve my strategy
This app is the biggest nerve wracking, cheating so there is in the app store!
The dice are rigged, there is absolutely zero randomness to the dice and the game app chooses who wins or losses not the pay of the player or any strategy out forth by that player.
This app also sells so called tickets which you can in turn play others for, basically turns these tickets into a currency but the only ones that hey actual money are the admins of this app. They also run tournaments for so called tickets where you can win tickets.
They have a forum section but if you post something that goes against their "racket" or hurts their bottom line numbers, they will block you from ever posting it.
I've shared my findings of them cheating via email with some one claiming to be administration but he just denied my facts and findings that the dice and app is rigged.
Do yourself a favor don't get the wacky app... IT CHEATS,
This backgammon live is awesome. Now I can play with real people around the world on my phone without leaving the house. It's also easy to login in with FB account or other SM account. This game is really good for beginners like me. You gotta practice your skill and get improved. Well done!
