Backgammon, also known as Tavla, is a two players board game that involves a combination of strategy and luck, due to rolling dice. The goal is to remove all of one’s own playing pieces from the board before the opponent can do the same. While the dice can determine the outcome of a single game, strategy is what separates the good and the better players over a series of games.

Why did you change the game?
The former version was no longer compatible with iOS 11 (it wouldn't start or crash in most cases). The code base of the former version was too old to just be updated which is why we needed to rebuild the game from scratch. We used this opportunity to also implement a multiplayer mode and update the graphics.

How can I play the former / old version of Backgammon?
You can only play the old version if you don't update the game and use a device that uses iOS 10.3.3 or lower.

Where is the "Undo" button?
After your first move, there will be a circular arrow pointing to the left, at the bottom right of the board. Tapping the arrow will undo your move.

The only two complaints I have are that the opponent seems to win the opening roll way too much. The other complaint is that when I'm playing, I will suddenly be knocked out of the game and some weird page tries to load so I have to keep hitting my home button to take me out and back to the game. It's enough of a glitch it makes me want to go to another app. Please fix it. I'm on an iPhone. If it's supposed to be an advertising interruption, you need to make it so player doesn't get bounced out of the game!

The opponent gets several doubles. I went two games with none. Statistically, this would not happen IRW. Deleted it.
