Ratings and Reviews
Great game, though does allow opponent to cheat.
I have noticed lots of doubles on opening rolls. Moreso than in real life, though I've had games in real life where we've gotten 3 doubles in a row in the opening, just not as frequently as in this game. That being said, and understanding that true random doesn't exist in an app, both players are playing in the same environment, so it's still fair. In my real life games, I've started paying closer attention to dice rolls and I'm constantly amazed by how often I'll get the exact right number then followed by something like 3 doubles in a row. I don't question in because obviously my real life dice are random. I think I only question the game dice sometimes because I'm paying closer attention. I think they are as random as possible for an electronic game. I only have one real issue, and it's the reason I gave 4 stars: if an opponent realizes they are going to lose with a backgammon, they can wait out the clock and lose with only a gammon when the timer runs out, allowing them to cheat. It's incredibly frustrating and seems like it would be an easy fix. This still occurs with the confirm moves (or whatever it's called) option enabled. Would love it if this was fixed because man is it frustrating. Perhaps add a way to report players who cheat in this way. Other than that, love the game! Thanks for making it!
Won’t enforce backgammon!!
Would be five stars, but (at least on the iPhone app) the game won’t enforce a backgammon! For example, if you are behind with lots of chips on the bar, all you have to do is resign and you will just lose a gammon. What?!? That let’s you weasel your way out of a proper backgammon win for your opponent. The same thing happens if your opponent lets the clock run out with chips still in your inner court. They only lose a gammon instead of the backgammon. I and every player i have ever met say that when a person loses, for whatever reason, they should lose based on the position they are in.
While there are a few other subjective things I would like to see improved, not enforcing a backgammon should be at the top of their fix list.

Dear player, thank you so much for your feedback! :)
There is an option "Move confirmation." To enable it, you need to click on the right side of the screen, then you will see a green arrow, there you can find all the options for the game.
Sorry for such a long answer
Have a great game!:)
Hmmmm... it’s good, but...
I’ll start this off with stating I really wanted to like this game. The lure of FAIR dice is what enticed me to download the game, but I can honestly say, compared to other backgammon computer games I’ve played, the dice feel more natural and fair. However... I’ve been playing in training mode (just NOT interested in playing against real people) but it definitely feels that the more I play, the more difficult it gets. And I noticed little to zero difference between NOVICE and APPRENTICE modes. It feels like I’m playing against an expert player. I play this game to de-stress after a long day at work and sometimes just don’t have the mental capacity at the end of the day for a hardcore game. The beginning was GREAT... but the computer is shutting me down to where I’m just not enjoying it anymore. I think the game has real potential and is probably GREAT for higher level strategic players, but it’s just not working for me. I used to play real backgammon for years with my brother... we’re both non-skilled players, but it was just family fun. That’s the experience I’m looking for.

Dear Elyrinea, we are very sorry that you had a bad experience playing our game. We designed the artificial intelligence to be weak enough to practice playing. However, there are a lot of newbies, you can play with them. Or invite your brother or friends to our game and play with them for fun. The more you play, the better your level of play will be. And then, the victory over our artificial intelligence will not be difficult for you. We wish you interesting games and bright victories in backgammon!
