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.

Recent problem with pieces “freezing” during key game play

I’ve enjoyed this game for a couple of years because I found its dice roll generator to be the most random and lower in its favoritism of high gold players. Recently, however, I’ve played two opponents where I’ve encountered a “dice freeze” when I couldn’t remove pieces at the end of the match. My WiFi connection was fine. It just occurred at a critical point in the match where I had an excellent chance to gain an advantage (“rolling double sixes”). It leads me to suspect opponents who have found ways to manipulate the roll off process. I’d be curious to hear if this has been encountered by other players.

Dear player, this seems like a game error. Other players definitely cannot influence this.
Contact us on support email please We need the room number(replay number) to check what
exactly happened in that game
To find it, click on the green button with the arrow on the left, then “statistics”, “game history”, find that game and click on the eye to view it.
Scroll to the very end of the repeat and click on the "Results" button.
The game number will be written in gray on top, something like
#238472342354, so we need it to figure out what exactly happened in that game.

Unforgivable offense

So sad! Random dice....MY #*#* This game is such a scam!!! You win when you buy coins. Then, with each update you fall from the good graces of the games creators. This is the type of fraud (APP) that Apple should take a closer look into and investigate cheats. I’ve been playing this particular app for a couple years now. I know its seems like a waste of time, but I kept a separate tab of my rolls and they did not match the game stats. Its rigged and you’ll see if you keep your own stats. When the only roll that can take you out occurs time and time again, compared to reality, you’ll wonder why and how the app creators are allowed to sell in the App Store. The worst part, is I truly love the game of backgammon, this app with all its boards and great effects means nothing, when its lost the respect of those that love the game. Remember, when the first dice are admittedly fixed, the rest of the game is too. Win or Lose, it feels cheap when you look back at the dice and when/how they were rolled.

Developer Response ,

Dear player, thank you for your review, but this is a false claim.

Apple checks all apps and they would never approve the app if this was the case and there would be no logical reason for us to fix the dice. Randomness is random. There is no rule preventing one player rolling more doubles than the other. It is randomness. If both players rolled same amount of doubles it would not be random and would not be interesting. Furthermore, our dice numbers correspond to mathematical expectancy long term and you can check it yourself in the dice section of the profile.
