    I am an accomplished backgammon player and the computer seems to have all the advantages that come with rolling doubles and correct needed rolls. The dice rolls always seem to favor the computer. If you are a serious player I would not recommend.

    Disappointed

    Playing against the computer is not much fun. If you leave a move open, you will get busted. Computer as your opponent generates more high number doubles than you roll. Not very fair. I do however, like the sounds and backgrounds. Wish I had never purchased this one. Will look for a better one.

    Junk

    When i first got the gaame. The game work greaat for thr frist two weeks. Now the game is so slow, it is not worth plaaying. The dices stop in mid-air and hang thhere for over three to four min every move. This was a wast of money and you have no way of getting a refund.

    Unfair dice rolling

    The game is ok except it gets frustrating when playing a live person. Seems like they always get the doubles in uneven terms. Also, not being able to text to an apponent without paying extra.

    Unfair Advantage to the Computer

    At the higher levels of play, instead of programming the computer to play more skillfully, the programmers have chosen to simply give the computer opponent better rolls (more doubles, ideal roll combinations, etc.). As a diversion to occupy your time the game is fine, but if you want to play "unfixed" backgammon, I can't recommend this app.
