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.

    Good game but mostly luck at expert level
  • by mohamad 5/11/2015
    Very good
  • by Jeffrey 5/10/2015
    Nice dissertation on statistics but there is more than just equivalent dice rolls at play in bg. The timing of doubles and percentage of hits is way to high. Good game play but Hard is cheating and medium is too easy.

    Usually game cheats when it needs to, such as when tied near end. It will get higher rolls on average. Watch for yourself.
