Best internet backgammon

I have loved this game for years - partially because i dont need internet to use it - & best backgammon game around

Developer Response ,

Your score has no impact on network disconnects. These can happen for many reasons, but most of the time they are caused by unstable network connections, such as cellular data connections or weak WiFi signals. These can be on your side or your opponent's side.

Good interface but definitely cheats

I wasn’t sure if suspicions of cheating were observation bias or not so I captured stats on hundreds of games. One thing I tracked is not the number of doubles but the quality of the doubles. While somewhat subjective we can all agree that double sixes bearing off is much better than doubles sixes when getting off the bar with six blocked. I rated hundreds of examples and computer scored much better. I also tracked how often, based on points covered, the odds of getting of getting off the bar in the FIRST attempt which is critical to avoid the opponent setting up a position. Based on over 500 cases, the computer is successful at least 15% more often.
The sample sizes are statistically significant.

Have played this game for years but would prefer a game where I don’t have to plan for the computer getting lucky rolls at higher odds than normal.

While we can assure you that the game not not cheat in any way, we've also implemented the Roll Again feature which allows you to roll again, either for the computer or for yourself, when luck makes the game less enjoyable than you want it to be.

Fix it!

Developer, received your response advising how to remove the Roll Again option…is ridiculous and non professional ! Read my initial review, carefully this time, I’ll say it again, FIX the game FIRST then remove this silly addition…hope you got it now…your game is certainly RIGGED… This Roll Again additional option doesn’t make it better, it truly is an irritant! Fix it and take away this Roll Again nonsensical addition.

Sorry guys, lame excuses, since I am a statistician I can very clearly tell you created a faulty game, no desire to fix it? Ok, just don’t come up with such lame excuses insulting the intelligence of many players. So be it, it’s a waste of time to try again. I’ll download another one.

Developer Response ,

Unfortunately there is nothing to fix as the game is in no way biased. We have tried our best to convince users that there is no bias by providing several different dice roll algorithms, including manual dice which you can roll yourself and then enter the values in the game. Our last attempt was to add the Roll Again feature which makes it easier to pick a different roll when the one you got isn't what you feel is right.
