Backgammon Masters

I am so impressed. I recently wrote a derogatory review and the developers of this game responded. A recent update lead me to believe i could no longer play against the cmptr. I was wrong and instructions were supplied so that i loaded the game again. Thank you so very much! I am revising my review; as I do enjoy this app immensely. Just a little confusing on how to maneuver.

Dear player, you can still play against computer. Simply press X on the login window and click "Play". Then choose "Practice" from the selection at top. You will see option to play against AI.

Disappointed in latest changes....fun has been removed.

This app has changed so much over the last couple of years....for the worse in my opinion. When I first started playing this app, you could chat with any player you chose to play with out of the queue. Then, that feature was removed & you could only chat with established “friends”. This defeated the purpose of making friends. I personally didn’t add a player as a friend until after I’d played & chatted with an individual a few times. But, I continued to play & just chose my matches from the queue based on bet size, name, photo or just random CHOICE. Now.....NO choice is available to me. The game now chooses who I can play, how many times, with or without extended time & I can’t even pick a board design unless I choose the corresponding bet amount. And forget making “friends”! Main chat is the only place to have a conversation. What’s the purpose in that? I’d rather be playing the game & chatting than just posting random comments in a group of players who may or may not speak same language. As soon as I’m out of coin, I’ll be leaving this game. Too bad....at one time this was a fun game....now it’s boring....like playing the computer. I’ll be looking for a new backgammon app....I suggest you do too.

Thanks for your feedback. We are very sorry that you didn't like our latest update.
Chat during the game was turned off to prevent players from insulting each other.
Automatch was introduced to simplify the gameplay, as well as to ensure that dishonest players could not fill their rating, transfer the gold obtained by dishonest means and so on.
In the future, you will see big positive changes that you will surely like. We will be waiting for you in our game. We hope your opinion will change for the better.

Enjoyable providing hours of fun

Fast, online has many players. Offline is good to for airplane rides and such. Nice board choices. Hear some complaints from others about dice favoring opponents but that’s the way player may feel when losing and it all goes around in the course of continued play. Developers work hard. They provide methods to check impartial dice roll integrity. Have been playing years now. Coin is reasonable and goes a long way. Much better than most of the other BG games online. Give it a try, I did and got hooked :)

Thank you for your feedback. For a random number generator, there is no difference who wins in a particular match. After all, one of you in any case will recieve a reward for the match. There must always be a winner and a loser. Today your opponent won, tomorrow you will win. If everything was as you described, then other players would also be unlucky and then there would be no winners. There is no point in implementing algorithms in this way. We are using Mersenne Twister Random Number Generator which many other similar projects use. You can find out more about dice generation in Backgammon Masters here: http://www.2kbgames.com/faq/#q15 There are several ways you can test accuracy of dice in our app for yourself: 1) You can check the average long term dice roll statistics in Statistics -> Dice both for yourself and your opponents. This shows the percentages of average dice rolls that comply to mathematical expectancy. 2) In the latest update, after each game you can check a ""seed"" number in the last game statistics. Click on the question mark near this seed and you will be taken to our website where you can check that Mersenne Twister Random Number Generator truly generates this sequence of dice rolls from this particular seed, that way confirming that the dice are truly generated from Mersenne Twister RNG and not manipulated. 3) In main chat you can enter the command .dices, you will see total roll count on server since restart and percentage of doubles rolled. You can see for yourself this complies with mathematical expectancy. 4) The Mersenne Twister Random Number Generator is open source. Everyone can download it and take a look. Please download it here: http://mastersofbackgammon.net/backgammon/random_source.zip Please use these options to confirm that the dice are indeed fairly generated. Luck can differ from game to game, that is what randomness is all about!
