Best version of Backgammon for the NOOK Color so far

This game includes Chess, Backgammon, Tic Tac Toe, Checkers, Ludo, Nine Men's Morris, Snakes and Ladders, and Reversi. The Chess game is adequate and supports all the important rules for a casual game like castling and en passant. The graphics are very good, but only support one board style. The Backgammon game supports doubling and the Crawford rule. At the time of this review there was only one other Backgammon game available for the NOOK Color. The other version shows the pip count and shows a larger playing area which makes it easier to tap on the checkers. There isn't much to say about Tic Tac Toe. The Checkers game is adequate and includes options for huffing. It does not support opening cards as in tournament checkers. Ludo is a MUCH simpler version of Pachisi which only uses a single die instead of two, fewer spaces on the tracks, and doesn't allow blockades. It's a bit boring. The implementation of Nine Men's Morris is good. It includes the flying option which is disabled by default. Not much to say about Snakes and Ladders. The Reversi game is adequate and has animation. The graphics and sound are good. None of these games work in landscape mode.

So so

The games are okay. My icon doesn't show up...I hate that! Don't think I would buy it again, given the chance. :/

    Disappointing

    Cant go to landscape in backgammon, LOTS of pointless taps. Click to select dice, click to roll dice, move, click to get the other guy to go, etc. There are better out there.

    Where is it?

    The other astraware apps are very good and so I ordered this one. Well it is in my computer but not in my nook.

    I am concerned about the non delivery of this app. Only one star because I have to - -= -
