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 stacked toward computer

    GD cheating piece of ****. ALWAYS gets the miracle roll. Sometimes 3-4 in a row. It will NOT allow to rank zero stars. C H E A T S, C H E A T S, C H E A T S. I did not realize something could suck and blow at the same time until I saw this piece of cheating **** at work!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You have to to be f€=~+¥g kidding me. had 4 pieces left. Had 7, yes 7, of the computers piece in my back court. The computer won. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME WITH THIS PIECE OF ****.

    The game works well - it's fast and stable, but the random rolls are not random. Whatever the computer needs to roll to knock your piece(s) off it will get it no matter the probability. You can bet the farm on it. Meanwhile you'll be forced to pass four times in a row while it rolls doubles. This happens consistently - even on the basic level.

    Good game but seems to be a little in favor of the computer on some rolls. It always seems to get the rolls it needs. .
