Impossible
JUL 7, 2007

"Although I consider myself to be a moderate to expert backgammon player, I found this game`s "expert" level to be rediculously difficult to impossible. The dice roll far too often in the computer`s favor. Yes, the computer gives you a few wins, but the computer`s rolls are overwhelmingly beyond random chance. "

 
Best of Backgammon Games

"I play the easy to medium levels and find this version the best I`ve ever bought. Yes, the computer often gets a ridiculous amount of doubles but not as many as other Backgammon games I`ve purchased. I love this game and will always have it on all my PDAs. It`s challenging and lots of fun. And I beat it four to one. I like those odds."

 
No challenge

"The computer accepts every double. Enough said. Otherwise, it`s still a good time-passer."

"I have been playing Backgammon since I was little and I usually win against people...but this game cheats. It always gets that perfect roll of the dice...hmmmm. But it is fun to play even still. "

 
Very good game

"I play a lot of backgammon. This is the best computer backgammon game that I have played. It is a challenge on expert mode. But I still win about 75% of the matches. I highly recommend it."

"The product is fun, however, particularly near the end-game, and when the user`s piece is on the bar, it generates favorable rolls of the dice for itself, and unfavorable for the user. Had to drop down to the Beginner level for a chance to win, and it was still cheating terribly. Developers need to re-write the code, because who wants to play a game if it`s not fair?"

"I finally deleted this game from my device. It cheats in the following ways: it splits counts like dice are 2 and 5 and it moves pieces 6 and 1, sometimes even more or sometimes less, whatever works to make it win; Many times I find myself kicked off the board when I didn`t have a piece open/uncovered. I thought this was freeware, but since I see I paid money for it, I am going to seek my money back. It`s THAT bad."

"This is my favorite game!!! You can set preferences to increase skill level as you progress. Keeps score, statistics and allows move undos. `Help` provides how to play instructions. Fun game that develops your strategy skills."
