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 phone or tablet, just as you would with a board. It’s also possible to play with your friends through the Messages app, 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.

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

— Features

• Beautifully designed board with rich wood textures and felt lining

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!
