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.

    Dice are not random on any setting. The only true way to raise the difficulty against tge CPU is to rig the dice. You can predict with 90% accuracy when the CPU will roll doubles. Ridiculous.

    Good game

    This game sucks. There is no way the computer can have as much luck as jt does. After many games I am convinced the dice rolls are NOT completely random! There is some mechanism in the SW that gives an edge to the computer. I have had many rolls, over and over, as many as 3 or 4, that are the exact same! I gave never had real dice do this.

    I love this game! I have played this game app., for two years now. Thought i would add my opinion on the so called, "cheating dice". When I first started playing, I lost a lot! But, as i have gotten better, I lose and win evenly with the computer on hard. I also get my fair share of doubles and other favorable number combinations! Play at least once a day! Happy happy! :)
