- Quick "Sit&Go" tournaments are no longer displayed at the lower part of the tournament menu, only regular tournaments.
- 64 player limitation has been removed from regular tournaments. Now any amount of maximum players can register for a tournament, however the minimum amount is limited to 32 participants. If there are only less than 32 people registered for the tournament, it will be cancelled.
- Each match in regular tournaments now lasts until 2 points. This means that each player has a way to regain lead by winning with 2:1 and progressing to the next tour. Bet cube in tournaments is now available and the winning mode (backgammon, gammon) affects points at the end of the game.
- Changed time per move for quick "Sit&Go" tournaments and regular tournaments. Just like stated in international rules there are only 12 seconds per move right now and additional time (red timer) which is allocated for the whole match (all rounds in a game between two players). For quick "Sit&Go" tournaments this time is 2 minutes, for regular tournaments - 4 minutes, since in regular tourneys game lasts until two points. This way tournament games will become faster. Allocate your time wisely so you have enough additional time for the entire match.
- "Time" field has been added to the readiness window. First value indicates green timer (time per move which refills), second value indicates the red timer (additional time for the whole match that doesn't refill).
- Fixed a bug in player readiness window with "Ready" button not always working
- Tour number, point limit and current score is now displayed on the left side of the board
- Removed holiday theme
- Fixed bug in game logic
- Fixed minor bugs
- Fixed launch bug on OS X versions under 10.10

good - i like it really nice game just do it ! but we need more board styles thanks
Masters of Backgammon - When I first purchased the game, it was among the WORST online backgammon games I have ever played. Today (May 9th, 2012), I had to update the app or be unable to play game. After updating the app, this game is definitely the absolute WORST online backgammon game ever. The person who developed this updated app should be "shot." There are no tournaments available. You can play against yourself or against a computer (BORING). But, when you try to play online against a live player, the updated app will not allow that to happen….. you can see that other players are online and "waiting to play" but when you click on their icon, nothing happens. Or, if you "create a game"…. nothing happens. In short, you can NOT play online against a live player. You can play against the computer, or play against yourself (role dice and move pips for BOTH players). WORST BACKGAMMON GAME EVER.!!!!! It may only cost $1.99, but that is still $1.99 too much….. the App Store should pay me to download this game. WASTE OF TIME & A WASTE OF MONEY.

Rigged - Game is clearly rigged. There are people who obviously have found was to manipulate the dice and they always appear to be from the same foreign countries. I emailed the company and they got aggressive in denying that they have cheating. No reason to get aggressive unless it is true. I am an expert in backgammon, studying and playing for years and winning many competitive tournaments around the world, yet I can barely win a game on this app. Dont waste your time or money.
