Backgammon is a game of skill and strategy; one of the world's classic parlour board games, played for recreation and gambling. Like Mahjong, Backgammon is played in social groups in coffee houses and bars. Historically, variants of this game are believed to have originated in Egypt over 3000 years ago, from where it was adopted by the Romans and then later travelled to India. It also spread to East Asia, but was largely replaced by Xiangqi (Chinese chess). It is now very popular in the West.

Reviews From google play store

plays pretty well. After 200 matches against the computer at level 5, I've won about 60% of the matches and 65% of the points. I'm good, but not that good. it has some basic flaws in logic, such as giving up backgammons when it could avoid it. it's a good app to learn and get better at backgammon, just wish it was a little smarter.


By far the best backgammon game. DOES NOT CHEAT! If it does, it's doing a cr*p job, since I can beat it on L5 matchplay to 5 with doubling dice most times (358 to 72 matches). Computer could avoid backgammons sometimes, but doesn't. Either way, Backgammon IS a game of SKILL, you just need to practice, hit your opponent more and take risks.


I love this game. I love the way everyone thinks the CPU is cheating. Haha, why would they do that? Follow the link and read up. Ever tried to beat a chess computer? The CPU is not cheating. It just plays the best moves with the dice rolled. One little thing though, please change it so it doesn't unnecessarily lose by a gammon when it could have moved the lady piece out of the back quadrant.


Great game. I am able to consistently win single person first to 15 point matches at level 5. I say this not to praise myself but to point out that if the game cheats, which I don't believe, then it doesn't make a good job of it. If you keep losing then improve your understanding of probability.


Nice interface, questionable AI. Quite beatable to level 4. On hardest level, odd things happen. I won first match 7-0. Thereafter I could not win a single game. Game stats say it all, computer rolled twice as many doubles as I did, if I left a single blot it was hit every single time without fail. Regret paying for app now.


I have been playing this for well over a year now, and it continues to amaze me how hokey the dice generator is. Mysteriously, and magically, the AI seems to know when to double (followed by favorable rolls). Perhaps its playing the odds... But then magically, and mysteriously, I get 3 double 6's in a row... while I'm on the bar. The only way to program a game for "Easy" vs "Hard" Is to manipulate the rolls or the AI. Either way, it's clear this game is manipulated to make it harder to play.


Edit*. You might want to fix the level 5 AI so it doesn't give up Backgammons so easily. Great game. If you think the game cheats, maybe you aren't as good as you think you are. I have played 553 rounds on level 5. I have won 369 of those games. Do I have a bad stretch of luck sometimes? Sure. But I don't attribute that to the AI cheating. It's just bad luck. It happens.


Absolutely nailed on cheating AI. Sorry. I've played backgammon for over 40 years and never seen such consistent dice cheating as this game produces over and over again. Miraculously throws exactly the dice needed to get itself out of a difficult position time and time again. Especially when bearing off. Uninstalling. Don't bother with it unless you.enjoy being conned.


This is definitely the best backgammon game available today. The AI is excellent on the highest level and pretty tough to beat. To all those complaining the AI cheats - no, the AI does not cheat, your skills are just not good enough. Highly recommended app.


too many doubles esp. during bearoff and computer play is mediocre even on top difficulty. makes some terrible moves that ruin games. nice interface though.


1. bears off for both if you poorly. 2. gives up dumb backgammons. 3. consistently gets outrageous rolls and doubles. 4. computer still dumb. 5. computer still loses 70% of time. 6. crappy game


Quite good, purchased for non ad experience. However the Auto Bear is poor (it stacks rather than spreading out) and should be fixed. It would also be nice if a forfeiting option would be added.


Graphics are great. The play levels 1-3 are too easy. Level 4 or 5 are based on some algorithm that, supposedly, reflects the play of thousands of games played in real-life. I doubt it. Regardless of the explanations given by the authors, probabilities are probabilities. Anybody with a modicum of training in statistics will immediately detect VERY low probability occurrences that happen repeatedly. When I play with manual dice I will beat ANY level every time. When I play with CPU generated “random” dice, I watch in amazement as the CPU’s pieces hopscotch through a veritable minefield. It is a good game for a beginner, but, unfortunately, it will teach some awful habits that go counter good skill development. An opponent who always runs and always hits every blot is simply not fun. Use the game for entertainment, if you are bored. For learning proper backgammon you will have to look elsewhere. After all, what do you expect for 2 bucks?


Really a great game to immerse ourselves when we need to relax. However, after playing for long, I really feel that AI for opponent is one sided - just when the AI is about to lose points, you see double of 5 or 6 lifting the game for AI. Not justified. I am adding this line after playing for long. AI is one sided and not really random. If it is totally random how well you justify continous doubles that make you unplayable and the AI scoring just what is needed.Nevertheless a great game well made


I liked this game until I got to level five. The opponent consistently rolls doubles almost twice as often as the player especially during bear off. this is not normal and is very tough to beat. I will look for a different backgammon game


I don't think it's possible to write an algorithm that perfectly mimics random chance in an environment that requires human error. I'm mixing the rolling algorithm with the playing algorithm but that's what seems to be the case. That said, this is a beautiful, seamless game with well thou


I like the game, but there are a few things that bother me. I would love to be able to connect with friends and have multiple games going. I also don't like the algorithm for the dice rolls. I would prefer them to be more random and less about strategy.


Dice rolls are totally rigged. The only difference between level 1 and level 5 is the "randomness" of the computers roles. It is not uncommon for the CPU to roll 3 to 4 doubles in a row. The computer cheating has increased with the latest update. Half of the reviews discuss the computer cheating on level 5. The level of computer cheating on level 5 is ridiculous. The levels correspond to the degree of dice rigging and computer cheating. Level 1 no cheating into level 5 which is maximum cheating


Update: Review is still my opinion, but the claim to address the auto bearoff is getting old. A plan to fix is only that, a plan. One star down. *** Great implementation of backgammon! I've played nearly 1500 games at level 5 over several years, and statically the CPU and I are 50-50 in basics like first roll and doubles. I also win 60-40, so if anything, I suspect the algorithms have been "tuned down" to slightly favor the player. But I have to say, this edge helps keep me coming back again!


AI end game logic is flawed. Backgammons happen even when there is an easy out. Game rejects double when it means a loss, instead of playing out the game.
