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.

Ratings and Reviews
The game has been fun, and I enjoy being able to choose between online and AI games. It has recently started to lock up or freeze in the middle of the game. Off line is a bit annoying. I can reload the app and it starts at one roll before the issue. Online is worse, as it means that I will lose the match because I have to drop out.
3 doubles bearing off?
It appeared to roll random dice until AI got beat too many times, thereafter the dice rolls were manipulated to AI’s benefit. Multiple doubles during bearing off beats the player that is way ahead every time. What fun is that? You would think the programmers would have an incentive to keep us playing and enduring all those obnoxious ads instead of DELETING the game once the rolls get fixed in favor of AI? A very slow game as well.
No Fun, Game/dice are Rigged
I play against the computer. 9 out of 10 rolls has the computer win who goes first. I rarely get doubles and it throws them roughly every 3rd or 4th roll, and the game rolls exactly the numbers it needs to knock me off the board, or get past me almost every time. It’s just no fun when it’s not fair and I can tell what it’s goi g to do in response to the situation.
