A frequent complaint from some, new to NN (neural net) backgammon programs is "the program cheats". No, it does not cheat. If you are not convinced of this, try one of the NN programs (gnubg, jellyfish) that offer a "manual dice" feature. You will find that they win just as well you roll the dice or not. The perception that a skilled opponent is always incredibly lucky is a due to a combination of human nature..we remember our bad luck and forget the good rolls, and an ignorance of the subtle methods that experienced players use to maximize their chances.

    I don't care what anyone says, it cheats! It will ask you to accept a double then magically get outrageously devastating rolls.....over and over!

    I've been playing at the "Advanced" level, so can't speak for other difficulties. Biggest flaw is that the AI will challenge you early on to double up. Obviously you need to accept, but on the very next roll the AI will get exactly what it needs a VAST majority of the time and instantly screw you. Will either be able to hit you and cover , roll doubles, or a combination thereof. Try it for yourse

    Great foundation for an ideal backgammon app, with online FIBS play and the world class GNU program. All that is missing to get five stars is the doubling cube, and the evaluations of one's moves by GNU to learn and improve.

    I like the controls and the AI (the people who say the dice are rigged have clearly never played very good BG players or engines before). I would be delighted if I could play multi-point matches on FIBS. A good app.
