The #1 most downloaded Backgammon app, THANK YOU!

Backgammon is a board game where two players compete to get all their 15 pieces off the board before the opponent. Board pieces move based on dice throws.

This is a game of skill. A single game can be decided by luck, but the more one plays, the more the skill is important. After ~30 games the true skill emerges. Even a beginner can beat an expert through luck of draw in a single game, but after several games the skill prevails.

This version of Backgammon uses an advanced neural network in the highest levels, and will challenge advanced players. It also offers a fun experience for beginners, with lower difficulty levels and showing possible moves.

The scoring is based on the official Backgammon ELO system, with each game increasing or reducing rating points every game or match.

    No way are these dice random.
  • by MITCH 11/16/2014
    I've been playing the board game for years. No way these dice are random...even the chart proves it. They use the dice to increase the level of difficulty. The gave should have only one level and completely random dice throws.

    I'm addicted!!!
  • by User 11/15/2014
    After playing for well over a year, I'm quite sure that the "odds" on the dice throws and the point scoring convention favor the game over the player.
