    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.

    Pretty good.

    What's up with backgammon on androids? The double average for the device is WAY over the top!!!!! Has to be some bad math somewhere!!! Other than that, pretty cool games.

    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 - -= -

    Found two problems with the Backgammon game

    Had forgotten how to play my fave childhood game until I got this app, which I enjoy, but here are the two errors I found in the Backgammon game:

    1: Several times upon starting the game, I was asked to continue a game that I never interrupted. Each time, the board was exactly the same, including the dice roll I'd never done. That was annoying, but no big deal.

    2: I have gotten all my pieces in my quadrant, 1 on the 6 cone, none on the 5, 2 of the virtual opponent's pieces on my 1 cone. I roll double 5's, meaning I can't move. But the game won't let me pass my turn! My single piece is even lit up as if it could be moved. Thus, I have to forfeit the game (which I hate).

    Other than those two problems with the Backgammon game, I enjoy this app, especially the Chess game.

    Good App

    This was perfect for me, so many of my favorites in one place however, my absolute favorite backgammon freezes way too often when trying to make a move. The other games are perfect and flows freely definately a must have only thing is backgammon is lacking looking forward to an update for it.
