Description

Backgammon with Buddies lets you play backgammon with your friends whether they’re nearby or far away.

You can open the app and play on your computer, phone or tablet, just as you would with a board. It’s also possible to play with other players over Game Center, by sending the board back and forth after every turn. If you don’t know the rules, the app also contains a small guide to help you get started and a computer-controlled opponent that you can test your understanding against.

Backgammon with Buddies also supports a wide range of accessibility features, such as tab control, reduced transparency, VoiceOver and Voice Control. This means that you can play Backgammon with all your buddies, not just those who can see or touch the board.

Good game

I really appreciate the accessibility functionality built into this game. Excellent job describing the board and checker location. The black checkers do not contrast well enough with the board for me to see them when located on the dark colored sections. Can you add a different colored checker or make the darker section of the board lighter colored so the pieces stand out more? The game tells you that you won in player vs player but does not tell you when you lose. I noticed that against the CPU it does make that clear. The voiceover announcing the opponents move gets cut off every time so you have to cycle through the entire board to determine what happened. This is a good game that is well designed and with a few tweaks would be a five star app.

Needs Sounds

Great game, and accessible to VoiceOver users. However, it would be more exciting with game sounds.

Outstanding all around!

This is a great adaptation of the classic game, and a great example of what can be done in terms of Voiceover support among other accessibility features to boot! I can't tell you how thrilling it was to be able to play this game after 20 or so years of having no chance, all while chatting with my opponent in the messages window!
