Free and well worth it - Talk about getting what you pay for. A monkey could beat this game every time on the hardest level, it doesn’t keep score, the pieces are too touchy and can accidentally move with no undo, and the computer gives itself the first move 95% of the time.

Disappointing - I am at best an average player, but at its most difficult setting I can beat this game almost every time - often scoring gammons and occasionally a backgammon. Curiously it doesn’t keep score. If it did I would probably be winning by a ratio of more than 50 to 1. Whoever programmed this does not know much about backgammon tactics. It is absurdly aggressive and does not weigh the consquences of its moves. It will almost automatically hit any open piece in its own home court without regard for protecting its own open pieces in that area. Once you have set up your home court defensively, just open up pieces in its home and watch the slaughter. It just keeps hitting these pieces no matter how many you keep knocking it back The only way it ever wins is with many freaky lucky rolls that keep you off the board - extremely rarely.
NO UNDO - If you make a mistake - say you move your first chip, but realize you need to place your chips differently (happens a lot for me when I throw doubles), you CANNOT undo - PERIOD! I’m sure they did this to prevent people from constantly undo-ing to get the roll they want … but there are ways to implement undo so that players cant undo dice rolls or completed moves (so throw in an option for the player to confirm that they are done with their move so that they can undo all they want until they click on DONE - that would be a nice touch) … but I doubt this company will implement any such thing as even their checkers game forces you to jump when you have a jump on the board … no way to turn that off either
backgammon at its very basic - Ok backgammon game. Not a very good teaching game, even when set to difficult the computer makes stupid moves a "difficult" player would never make. And for a decent player as myself, it offers no challenge whatsoever. Just won 7 straight games and the computer never once got to bear off. didnt think i was that good, but this game makes me look like a pro. Missing key fetures that makes backgammon backgammon. #1. A points system #2. A doubling die?? how do you even have backgammon without that? pretty boring if you ask me, Ill stick to the backgammon on my phone
Incomplete - It's a good start, but you are missing what I consider a key feature, a points system.
Poorly Written Program - There is no strategy to this backgammon game. Anyone who knows how to play backgammon can beat the computer just about every single time on the “Hardest” level. It’s almost as if the person who wrote the program is not an avid backgammon player, as he makes moves like a novist. (Sorry, no disrespect intended to the programmer. Just saying.) Not only that, but the mechanics of the program are not good. It doesn’t keep score -(not good). If you move one chip and change your mind about moving it, you cannot go back and choose another. Online backgammon players usually want to move quickly. This program allows me to roll the dice and move my chips quickly, but after finishing my move, there is an annoying delay before the opponent rolls the dice. (Slow). Also, if you roll dice and there are no moves, you have to click “OK” before you can move on. (Why? Not Necessary - Slow). If all your men are in the home quarter of the game, when rolling to take them off the board, you have to click on each chip to put it in the home box, when you should only have to drag the lowest number chip into the box and then just click the home box for the next chip to go in. For example: If you roll a 6 and there are only chips on the 5-bar, you should be able to just click the home box and the chip in the 5-position should jump in the box (after having moved the lower number in, of course.) — This is a slow game. Other online backgammon games I’ve played can be done in 3 minutes or less. I like that. Not so with this game. I deleted it. If I’m going to play, I want to play with someone who knows how to play well and can move quickly.
